PRESS RELEASE: FACCC Statement on Governor’s Proposed Budget Revise
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Faculty Association of California Community Colleges has issued the following statement on Governor Brown’s proposed budget today:
“FACCC is extremely pleased that the Governor has acknowledged the direct connection between full-time faculty and student success, as recognized by the $75 million proposal for increased full-time hiring. Those funds, combined with the additional $141.7 million for increased operating expenses, will have a direct impact for students across California.” said FACCC Executive Director Jonathan Lightman, “Still, more needs to be done at the state level to ensure that our talented corps of 40,000 part-time faculty professionals are supported through office hours, pay equity, and health benefits. The state must also ensure that vital student success and equity programs, like Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) and Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE), are fully funded. FACCC looks forward to working with the Governor and Legislature on these issues as the budget process concludes.”
