BFA has prepared a brief report on the picture of UC’s future that we believe emerges from a combination of the initial recommendations forwarded by the Working Groups of the UC Commission on the Future (UCOF, aka “the Gould Commission”) and the proposal for a Cyber Campus recently described by Law School Dean Edley. As you will see, we find this picture to be a gravely troubling one. Both faculty governance and the standards and integrity of a UC education are at stake.
We hope to convene a BFA symposium on these matters in early fall. In the meantime, please read the attached BFA report on Gould Commission and urge your colleagues to do the same.
Professors Wendy Brown (Political Science), Suzanne Guerlac (French) and Gillian Hart (Geography)
