Gloria, who represents the coastal San Diego area, announced Assembly Bill 930, which would forbid the CSU Board of Trustees from approving pay raises for top executives during the same year as student fee or tuition increases.
In addition, the bill would require any proposed executive pay increases be reviewed at two public hearings.
“If we are going to ask students to pay more for a public education at our CSUs, campus presidents and CSU executives should not be receiving pay raises, especially when our objective is to make college more affordable,” said Gloria. “AB 930 promotes good governance, transparency, and makes sure our CSU institutions are putting students and student success first.”
Tuition in the Cal State system increased by 5 percent for the 2017-2018 academic year after holding steady for five years.
“AB 930 would provide much-needed transparency and accountability to the way the CSU Board of Trustees does business,” said Dr. Jennifer Eagan, president of the California Faculty Association and a Cal State East Bay professor.
