Video of this segment will be available online Tuesday afternoon.

In 1996, Californians voted for Proposition 209, which banned using racial preferences in public university admissions and state hiring. The debate over the proposition was fierce and both made and destroyed political careers. Since then, the number of white and African-American students on University of California campuses has declined, while Asian-American student numbers have grown each year. It’s a trend that will have a significant effect on the community and the workplace. Gloria Penner talks with higher education reporter Eneanor Yang Su about ethnic trends with the UC and what's happening locally at UCSD.
