UC’s achievements in challenging year
For the University of California, 2009 was filled with the trials of state funding slashes resulting in layoffs, furloughs and fee increases.
In spite of those challenges, UC continued to achieve marks of distinction, among them Nobel honors, major advances in stem cell, energy and anthropology research. The year also brought a visit from a first lady and long-overdue recognition for students whose studies were derailed by World War II.
