Greater Diversity Needed on UC Berkeley Campus

University of California President Janet Napolitano is requesting permission to boost California resident enrollment by ten percent in 2016. It would be the biggest bump in resident enrollment in a decade. The state budget approved in June has allocated an extra 25 million dollars to the University of California if it increased its 2016-2017 enrollment by 5000 California residents. While this spells good news for some, some groups are concerned that the new students will not represent the changing demographics of California.
