Another chapter in the endless California budget emergency is brewing.
Facing a 20 percent budget cut, the UC system now threatens institutional cannibalism. Some department chairmen at the University of California in San Diego suggest that drastic measures are in order—namely cutting services at less prestigious campuses like Riverside and Santa Cruz to preserve the elite schools like Berkeley and UCLA.
