UCSB Students Protest with Occupy Movement and Against Tuition Hikes

Students protested on UCSB’s campus Monday both in solidarity with the Occupy protesters at UC Davis and Berkeley and against tuition hikes. The protest coincided with a UC Regents meeting that was divided among four campuses and linked by teleconference for security reasons. UC President Mark Yudof issued a press release last week to refute rumors that tuition hikes would be under consideration at the meeting. The regents did float a plan to raise tuition earlier in the fall, however. If they are not granted the state funding they agreed to ask for on Monday, they will likely put tuition hikes back on the table.
