Support Grad Students at Univ. of California

Dear all,

Graduate students at UC are trying to eliminate the 18-quarter cap that limits their ability to get employment for the whole duration of their studies. The average of completion in history is seven years, while in anthropology it is seven and a half, for instance. Since the university only allows graduate students to be employed for up to six years as TAs, readers, etc., some of them run out of employment opportunities before they graduate. As you can imagine, this creates really difficult situation.
