Dr. Pan Makes Statement on Faculty Strike at California State University System

February 11, 2016

SACRAMENTO – Dr. Richard Pan, a pediatrician and Senator representing Sacramento released the following statement regarding the possibility of a faculty strike at the California State University:

“As a former professor, I understand the vital role that the faculty has in not only teaching and mentoring students, but in the success of our overall communities. While state funding and student fees have changed over the past decade, CSU faculty salaries have remained basically flat. It is imperative that our faculty, who are in the classrooms and laboratories, have the support of the administration to ensure our students receive a quality education. I urge a speedy and fair resolution that honors the core mission of the university system in educating the next generation of Californians.”
