|For the Week of December 17, 2012
A new report issued by the California Legislative Analyst’s Office on faculty recruitment and retention at UC shows that, even in these years of budget and staffing cuts, UC has consistently been able to attract the country’s best academics, pay them well, and keep them. Faculty rarely quit to take another job. The San Francisco Chronicle noted that UC’s budget is $22.5 billion, $2.5 billion of which comes from the state. UC spends about $2 billion in salary and benefits for its faculty.
