My name is Ingrid Bowman. I’ve taught undergraduates at UCSB for a decade. A layoff would force me away from my 30-year passion for teaching. It would cause financial instability for my family and jeopardize my daughter’s university education after high school. It would mean that the UC does not value devoted Lecturers like me who already go above and beyond every single day to serve students and the university’s mission.
