My name is Loren. This is my fifteenth year teaching at UCI and my ninth year as a lecturer. For me, a June 30th lay-off would most immediately mean having to find a new place to live as I would no longer qualify for my current housing. And it would mean finding new housing and moving in the middle of a pandemic. And my first-generation college students would be losing out on the mentoring and advice that I give to them about how to succeed based on my own hard-won experience.
