Hungry for more.
From the LA Times:

At his formal investiture ceremony Thursday, UC Riverside Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox called for significant expansions in enrollment, faculty and the campus itself. UC Riverside should grow its student ranks from the current 22,000 to 25,000 over the next six years as called for in its master plan but also go beyond that in the future, Wilcox said. The university will need to hire 300 more faculty members to accommodate growth and replace retiring professors, he added, according to an advance transcript of his speech. In addition, the university should move ahead with plans for new buildings, including a new interdisciplinary research building, and consider an events center for conferences and sports. He also suggested the university might need to build on property south of the campus along the 215 Freeway in the future...

Since the budget is unlimited, why not more of everything?  And an "events center."  Maybe one with lots of hotel rooms?  Can't imagine where that idea might have come from!

So, again, why not more?
