SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Responding to today’s release of Governor Brown’s 2015-16 budget proposal, leaders of the Faculty Association of California Community Colleges (FACCC) expressed appreciation for the increased attention to college funding, as well as hope that over the coming months legislative leaders will help improve the proposal to address longstanding needs in the community colleges.

Executive Director Jonathan Lightman lauded the Governor for the increased spending of state dollars in the community colleges and praised his efforts for not raising student fees.

“Following years of painful budget cuts, Governor Brown is prioritizing community college funding as one of the state’s most vital investments.”

Lightman also complimented the Governor on recognizing the need to increase the ratio of full- to part-time faculty and ensure access to professional development. He noted that these are both very important to the faculty and will help improve the quality of teaching and learning at the colleges.

Lightman added that this is the first step in a long process, anticipating significant conversations on how the proposal can be improved.

“FACCC looks forward to working with the Governor, Legislature and other community college system partners on assuring that the faculty voice is heard in the budget process and faculty priorities are addressed.”
