LOS ANGELES (AP) — University of California faculty leaders have voted against privatizing the funding of UCLA's Anderson School of Management, a move administrators had sought to put the school on par with private business schools.

In a letter to Anderson dean Judy Olian on Friday, a graduate affairs committee of the UC Academic Senate says it voted against the conversion 10-0, with UCLA's representative abstaining.

The committee said current UC policy does not allow them to approve the move to private funding, but said the rules should be reconsidered to address how a program could make that shift.

Under the proposal, the Anderson School of Management would have kept its UCLA affiliation, but it would no longer have received state funding, instead relying on tuition, donations and fundraising, like private schools.
