The University of California says its public policy and public affairs teaching center in downtown Sacramento will reopen this summer. Classes and internship programs shut down last fall when the university decided it could no longer afford the million dollar a year price tag to keep the campus running. Now, UC Davis will take over responsibility for the center and run it on a smaller budget. Student Ignacio Torres participated in the public affairs journalism program last year. He says the center’s curriculum and internship experience expanded his education.  
 
Torres: “Because of this program I have the opportunity to attend graduate school and hopefully continue in the profession of journalism.”
 
The various programs will cost UCD $400,000 a year to manage and will be partly paid for by student fees. In the past, the students’ home campuses received all payments for classes at the center.
 
The campus has operated since 2004…and officials say more than a hundred students typically sign-up for classes at the downtown location each year.
