Privatize Now, Ask Questions Later!
Like so many other faculty, staff, and students of the University of California, we here at the UC Movement for Efficient Privatization are extremely concerned by the pending privatization of the world’s premiere public university. Yet unlike the thousands of faculty, staff, and students whining over the direction in which certain elites are steering the UC, we are deeply troubled by the snail’s pace at which this inevitable transformation is proceeding. An enduring faith in the maxim “time is money” has led UCMeP to undertake a number of innovative projects since Fall 2009 to ensure the swift and efficient privatization of the University of California.
