My name is Bria Tennyson. This is my last year at UC Berkeley. For me, a June 30th lay-off would mean that continuing students would not have the benefit and privilege of learning from the best and most talented lecturers in the world. These students would be deprived of the opportunity to co-create meaningful mentorships with their favorite lecturers. Without my lecturer-mentor’s guidance, I do not think I would have been as successful in my undergraduate studies at Cal or prepared for my postgrad plans. Faculty Equity does equal Student Success, and UC Workers Make the UC.
