UC Berkeley students are up in arms over an approved 32 percent tuition increase for all ten campuses in the University of California system that will raise yearly fees above $10,000 for the first time in history.
Similar protests and sit-ins took place at UCLA and UC Santa Cruz.
The regent committee endorsed the hefty hike by a vote of 10-1. The record-breaking boost in undergraduate and graduate costs will go into effect next Fall.
