The 40-year debate over affirmative action at state universities generally has been conducted in terms of general principles. At first, advocates emphasized the importance of compensating African Americans (and later others) for the effects of generations of discrimination, while opponents contended that the Constitution must be colorblind. Later, the debate shifted to the claim that there are educational benefits to a racially diverse student body, a rationale for preferences that the Supreme Court grudgingly has accepted.

Let's start by calling "student success fees" what they really are - thinly disguised tuition increases charged to students for basic educational services. These fees, which are being levied at many California State University campuses, can cost up to $1,000 a year, on top of the official tuition, which has nearly doubled since 2007 to about $5,500. Not counting room or board. Because Gov. Jerry Brown's 2014-15 budget would increase state funding by more than $140 million, Cal State has agreed to freeze tuition.

California State University graduate students won a reprieve this week when officials decided to continue offering financial aid that helps about 20,000 postgrads pay for school. Students learned last week that Cal State was considering eliminating State University Grants for graduate students, while maintaining the funding for undergrads. The grant program currently waives tuition costs for about 120,000 low-income students, including about half of the university's 40,000 postgrads.

The chairman of California State University's governing board said Tuesday that he will propose capping the pay of new executives at 10% above what their predecessors made in the wake of stinging criticism of recent salary decisions. Herb Carter, chairman of the Board of Trustees, said the limit would address concerns raised by several state lawmakers who have introduced legislation that would establish stricter policies and curb the trustees' ability to set compensation. Trustees gathered Tuesday in Long Beach and will continue their meeting Wednesday.

Angered by years of student fee hikes at California's public universities and colleges, lawmakers are pursuing legislation that would give them broad new powers over how the higher education systems spend taxpayer money. The proposals include measures to limit student fees, freeze executive compensation and increase budget transparency, and even a constitutional amendment that would strip the University of California of its historic autonomy. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed several such proposals, but legislative leaders, faculty and student groups and labor unions are hoping for an ally in Gov.-elect Jerry Brown, who investigated fundraising practices at the California State University in his current job as attorney general.
OPINION
November 4, 2009 | Jeff Bleich, Jeff Bleich is the chairman of the Cal State University Board of Trustees and most recently served as special counsel to President Obama. This is adapted from his speech to the board.
For nearly six years, I have served on the Board of Trustees of the California State University system -- the last two as its chairman. This experience has been more than just professional; it has been a deeply personal one. With my term ending soon, I need to share my concern -- and personal pain -- that California is on the verge of destroying the very system that once made this state great. I came to California because of the education system. I grew up in Connecticut and attended college back East on partial scholarships and financial aid. I also worked part time, but by my first year of grad school, I'd maxed out my financial aid and was relying on loans that charged 14% interest.

The two young men whose portrait adorns the cover of "Jewish Life in the American West" are brothers, although they could hardly be more distinct in appearance. One is a dapper urbanite in coat, collar and tie. The other is wearing the iconic apparel of the American cowboy: a set of chaps on his legs, a holstered six-gun on his hip, a bandana around his throat, a Stetson on his head and a lariat in his hand.
