With over a half billion in cuts, the California State University Board of Trustees voted to increase student fees by 20%, implement employee furloughs and workforce reductions, cut enrollment and other measures that were met with protest at today's meeting in Long Beach.

Undergraduate students will pay approximately $4,827 per year under the new policy. Full-time non-resident tuition will go from $10,170 per academic year to $11,160, effective fall 2009. All employees, save for public safety personnel, will be asked to take two furlough days a month beginning in August.
