California State University (CSU) is an engine of economic mobility for Californians, particularly those from historically underrepresented communities.

But despite annual funding increases, CSU has struggled to enroll all eligible students in the face of increased financial pressures, including a lack of bond funding and ballooning costs for deferred maintenance.

CSU students across the state would face a 4 percent tuition increase, or $228 per semester, totaling $5,970 for the 2018-19 academic year.

Jeff Sessions, an avowed hard-liner on immigration, as his attorney general.
