UCR Receives $92 Million From Passage of Proposition 1D

By Karen Wong, Student Intern of CHASS College Computing

UCR will receive $92 million through Proposition 1D, the Kindergarten-University Public Education Facilities Bond Act, which was passed by California voters in the November 2006 General Election. The measure allocates $3.1 billion towards California’s colleges and universities to construct new buildings and related infrastructure, alter existing buildings, and purchase equipment for use in these buildings. The University of California’s ten campuses will receive $890 million. 

CHASS will receive a total of $10,940,000, including $8 million for working drawings and construction of the Culver Center for the Arts; $2 million for equipment for the Psychology Building; $940,000 for the Humanities and Social Sciences Instruction and Research Facility. 

The statewide ballot measure authorizes $10.4 billion in general obligation bonds to fund the repair and upgrade of public schools that include K-12, community colleges, and state universities.  Problems that Proposition 1D aims to resolve include helping public K-12 schools, colleges, and universities relieve overcrowding in classrooms, improve earthquake safety, fund vocational educational facilities, make needed repairs on aging buildings, and build new classrooms to accommodate the growing student enrollment in California’s public higher education system.

Furthermore, the passage of Proposition 1D serves as great financial support towards the expansion of the availability of quality health care to undeserved populations in California through the Programs in Medical Education (PRIME) being developed at several UC campuses. The measure will provide facilities and state-of-the-art equipment for increased enrollments in the program. 

The approval of Proposition 1D serves as an important step in helping the UC system fulfill its public mission of strengthening economic growth and quality healthcare throughout California.
