Decision
makers
need
a
reasonable
estimation
of
the
impact
of
budget
cut
in
 order
to
assess
whether
to
reduce
funding
and
what
amount
the
funding
need
to
be
reduced.

 The
information
on
the
short‐term
impacts
of
budget
cut
provided
by
the
UC
official
is
 insufficient
to
the
decision
makers.
 1) Long
term
impact
of
UC
budget
cut
 Equally
vague
is
the
information
on
the
long‐term
impacts
of
the
UC
budget
cut.

The
UC
system
 has
provided
highly
qualitative
assessments
of
the
long
term
impacts.

 "State
funding
cuts
for
education
will
hurt
 jobs,
the
work
force
and
the
economy
–
the
 very
things
needed
to
balance
the
budget."
 (University
of
California,
2008)
 
 “Without
a
well‐trained
work
force,
 California
won’t
be
able
to
meet
the
state’s
 needs
for
jobs
that
our
communities
need,
 and
the
jobs
that
make
California
 competitive
–
such
as
those
in
engineering
 and
science
–
will
go
elsewhere.”
(University
 of
California,
2008)
 "UC
has
the
highest
proportion
of
low‐ income
students
among
the
country’s
top
 research
universities...But
deep
cuts
to
 higher
education
now
will
limit
 opportunities
for
our
young
people"
 (University
of
California,
2008)
 "UC
operates
the
fifth‐largest
health
care
 delivery
system
in
