On a listening tour at Berkeley, UC Commission on the Future has its vision tested

By Wendy Edelstein

Members of the UC Commission on the Future, tasked with critically rethinking the institution in a time of financial crisis, came to Berkeley on Monday to discuss potential and sometimes controversial solutions to the problems facing UC with Senate faculty. About 40 faculty members turned up for the afternoon session in Evans Hall for the chance to weigh in on initial recommendations from the commissions working groups.

The commission released its initial round of recommendations last week in a 150-page report.
