Assemblymember O’Donnell Calls on CSU Administration to Provide Equitable Compensation for Faculty Members

For immediate release:

“Maintaining California’s reputation as a global leader in higher education can only be achieved by attracting and retaining talented faculty for our campuses.  As a teacher and Chair of the Assembly Education Committee, I stand in strong support of the ‘Fight for Five’ campaign to ensure California’s students are mentored by the best and brightest. California needs one million more college degrees by 2030 and we cannot reach that goal without the dedicated faculty of the CSU.”
