Yudof talks about fiscal crisis, possible fee increases

UC President Mark Yudof

UC President Mark Yudof says students have a right to be angry over the possibility of fee increases. "I'm angry too," he said at the UC Regents meeting. "The closer (education) is to being free, the happier I was. But that's not the world I live in." But the worst of the budget crisis is not over, he said, and fee increases are needed to prevent the university from sliding into mediocrity.

Watch videos of Yudof's remarks to the UC Regents:

Part 1: "Students have right to be angry."

Part 2: "We need to continue slashing costs."

Part 3: "We cannot compromise quality or access."
