Last week, the UC Regents approved expansion of the Anderson School of Management. The expansion would add 63,000 square feet to the existing Anderson complex by removing 60 parking spots, many of which are for disabled persons, from a nearby parking complex. What do you think about this?
  • The Anderson complex expansion will make it unnecessarily difficult for students to park near north campus. (38%, 46 Votes)
  • The expansion would give the Anderson school more space to engage the management school's students and faculty. (30%, 36 Votes)
  • The expansion is not likely to have a significant impact on student and faculty services. (17%, 20 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (15%, 18 Votes)

The UC Student Association’s Fund the UC Campaign looks to find alternate ways to increase funding for UC schools. It focuses mainly on reforming Proposition 13, which capped total local property tax rates at 1 percent of a property’s assessed value, to create more funds. What do you think of this proposal?
  • Proposition 13 should be reformed because it will bring extra property tax dollars to the state and the UC. (51%, 85 Votes)
  • Proposition 13 should not be reformed because it could increase taxes on commercial properties. (23%, 39 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue other than the ones specified. (18%, 30 Votes)
  • It would be too difficult to reform Proposition 13 without costs to the state and county governments. (8%, 12 Votes)

  • The child care facilities need to undergo administrative staff changes if the investigation finds problems with the current managerial staff. (56%, 123 Votes)
  • The child care facilities need to create stricter managerial policies to address the concerns of parents. (19%, 42 Votes)

The Westwood Neighborhood Council decided to increase its council members’ terms from two years to four years. This move raises questions of the feasibility of students being able to take part in the council, as the four year commitment could require students to stay back in Westwood after graduating. What do you think about this issue?
  • The council should return back to its two year terms as four year terms limit student participation and thus representation on the neighborhood council. (81%, 188 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not represented in the options above. (9%, 20 Votes)
  • The term limit change will not have any notable effect on student’s ability to participate on the council. (5%, 12 Votes)
  • The council’s decision to extend terms is wise as it reduces election costs and allows for more funds to be channeled into the neighborhood. (5%, 11 Votes)
