As blog readers will know, much of the drama around the UC budget during the past year has revolved around tuition and undergraduate admissions. At the national level, there is the unfolding presidential race. Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has proposed free tuition at public universities.* Reportedly, Hillary Clinton is about to unveil her own proposal. On the Republican side, Chris Christie, a semi-candidate, has opposed free tuition but likes some forms of aid.**

What unifies all of this political activity is a tacit assumption that what goes on at universities is mainly undergraduate production. Research? Graduate education? Professional schools? Hospitals? It sure seems like a lot is being omitted.

Just a thought!
