Come the fall semester, California State University Chancellor Timothy White says most CSU classes will remain online, but that likely won't be the only big change on the horizon for the largest four-year higher education system in the U.S.  

In Governor Gavin Newsom's revised state budget proposal, which he released last week, CSU system funding would be reduced by 10% in an effort to help cover the projected $54.3 billion deficit the state is currently facing. The UC system is also facing a 10% cut. It amounts to a $338 million reduction in state funding for the UC system and a $398 million reduction for the CSU system. Summer financial aid would also take a hit, with a $6 million cut for the CSU system. CSU Chancellor Timothy White joins AirTalk to discuss what a 10 percent reduction in state funding would mean for the Cal State University system.
