“58% of the budget comes from campus and state funds, 31% from federal and state public service grants, and 11% from philanthropy and public grants.”
Why should taxpayers be expected to fund ‘free’ college when schools like Berkeley have this kind of money to throw at progressive political efforts? Why do they get any government aid at all?

Report reveals UC-Berkeley’s ‘Equity and Inclusion’ budget is $25 MILLION
A executive search firm revealed that the University of California, Berkeley has a budget of $25 million per year for their Division of Equity and Inclusion.
According to Storbeck Search—a firm hired by UC-Berkeley—the university allocates a budget portfolio of $25 million per year for the Division of Equity and Inclusion. 58% of the budget comes from campus and state funds, 31% from federal and state public service grants, and 11% from philanthropy and public grants.
“As Berkeley strives towards the ideals of an inclusive, uplifting, anti-racist, and justice-centered campus during this unprecedented time in higher education and in the world, the University seeks a collaborative, solutions-oriented leader and accomplished visionary to serve as the next Vice Chancellor for Equity and Inclusion,” read the program layout.
The university announced on Feb. 18 that Storbeck Search would be assisting with the search for a new Vice Chancellor, Equity & Inclusion.
According to the firm, the budget “supports more than 150 full- and part-time professional staff who are employed in the Division, as well as about 250 part-time student employees.”
UC-Berkeley graduate student Allyson Kohen told Campus Reform, she wanted to see more “objective assessments.”
