UC Regents approve 32-percent increase in student fees

Amid scenes that resembled 1960s antiwar and civil rights demonstrations, the University of California Regents approved a two-step 32 percent increase in student fees Thursday. The increase will first hit students over winter break, with a 15 percent hike for undergraduate students and a 2.6 percent increase for graduate academic students.
