Students for Quality Education (SQE) was formed in 2007-2008 by students in the California State University (CSU) system to build the student movement for educational rights in public higher education. We were assisted in our efforts by the California Faculty Association.
The fight against student fee increases is not new
Last academic year, the CSU Board of Trustees imposed a tuition increase on students system-wide instead of fighting for additional state funding. This year, they are proposing to do the same thing, this time raising tuition by 4%, which would spike tuition to $5,970. After more than 30 years of disinvestment in the CSU, we are saying ENOUGH is ENOUGH.
