A commission formed with the sweeping charge of transforming the University of California to face harsh budget realities laid out a series of areas for consideration Tuesday, suggesting the university should contemplate a tiered fee structure across its various campuses and the creation of three-year degrees. The draft documents released Tuesday by the UC Commission on the Future do not contain concrete recommendations, but rather potential areas worthy of exploration. The commission has five working groups, which will examine the size of the university; its curriculum; issues of access and affordability; and strategies for funding and research.
