Blumenthal takes part in group envisioning UC's future

UCSC Chancellor George Blumenthal is co-chair of the Size and Shape of UC committee, one of the working groups established under Regents Chairman Russell Gould's UC Commission on the Future.

The commission was launched by Gould in July to shape a far-reaching vision to ensure excellence and access to UC in the future while addressing acute financial challenges resulting from the state's fiscal woes.

The Size and Shape of UC working group, whose other chair is UC Santa Barbara professor and commission member Cynthia Brown, will look into the appropriate form for the university going forward.

Other working groups include:

  • Education and curriculum

  • Access and affordability

  • Funding strategies

  • Research strategies
