FACCC Statement on Governor’s Revised 2017-18 Budget
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Faculty Association of California Community Colleges has issued the following statement on Governor Brown’s revised budget proposal today:
“FACCC is very appreciative of the Governor’s continued commitment to strengthening the California Community Colleges,” said FACCC Executive Director Jonathan Lightman. “FACCC is especially grateful to the Administration for its consideration of $160 million ongoing increase to base funding. This is extremely important to cover operational costs as our institutions continue to make progress in student success.”
In the next month, FACCC will be working with legislative leaders and Administration officials to improve upon today’s proposal. FACCC continues to advocate dedicated funding to increase the ratio of full- to part-time faculty, support for part-time faculty with office hours, health benefits, and compensation equity, and statewide student service programs as these are all fundamental to our educational mission.
