My name is Bernabé Rodríguez. This is my 3rd year at UCR as a graduate student. For me, a June 30th lay-off means a losing healthcare for my family. It will also impact the high quality education that has made the UC system one of the best public school programs. I have grown and see other students grow as a result of caring teachers. Also, librarians and other people are an essential component of the school in terms of facilitating access to resources that are used for creating important scholarship.
