June 30 layoffs would mean a great public university settling for mediocrity.

I’m I-Wei Wang and I’ve been a librarian at UC Berkeley for 13 years. I have the luxury of a partner who can replace our medical coverage if I’m laid off – not everyone has that. Layoffs of lecturers, library workers, and other academics who teach and support the education/research mission of the University would devastate our some of best and brightest colleagues, and break faith with a generation of students who were promised a world-class UC education.
