Brenda Lo. UCB ’18. UC lecturers have played a key role in shaping my undergraduate experience and post-grad career path. Their care and dedication are often the topic of praise whenever my friends and I discussed which lectures and courses made us feel the most engaged and excited to learn. They understand that teaching includes making that human connection that will guide and leave an impression on students to be better individuals for tomorrow, to then create a better society. I fear a lay-off of this key staff would only further destroy the quality education held at these institutions.
