Trenton Stone, director of the professional and academic fund at USC, said that some administrative plans too often treat money grants as end-all solutions.

“Basically, we occasionally get these resolutions approved and instead of them actually doing any work, we are just granted $50,000,” Stone said during the event. “The next course of action is different for all of us, and we hope that this is just the first symposium and that after this, we continue to foster a relationship where we are continuously learning from each other.”

“Sixty-eight percent of our operating revenue at this institutional level comes from tuition, and so we’re able to just wave that over the head of the administration, and they have to respond to that,” Lesure said. gas density at stp Clint Isom (junior) of Pitzer College, left, and Jordan Walker (sophomore), right, discuss shared governance at Occidental College in Los Angeles on Saturday, Dec. 1st, 2018. gas vs electric heat Nancy Zhou/The Occidental
