Berkeley Supports Public Access to Federally-Funded Research

UC Berkeley Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost George Breslauer is one of the initial signators to an Open Letter to the Higher Education Community affirming UC’s support for increased public access to federally-funded research results.  The letter, which endorses the Federal Research Public Access Act (S.1373 and H.R.5073), was issued on April 23, 2010.  EVCP Breslauer was joined by 26 other university presidents, provosts, and research vice presidents, including John Etchemendy (Provost, Stanford University), Lawrence Pitts (Provost and Executive Vice President, Academic Affairs, University of California), and Enrique Lavernia (Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor, UC Davis).
