PRESS RELEASE: FACCC Statement on 2017 Budget Act
SACRAMENTO, Calif. The Faculty Association of California Community Colleges has issued the following statement on Governor Browns signing of the 2017-18 Budget:
FACCC is grateful to both the Legislature and Governor for their continued commitment to strengthening the California Community Colleges. An additional $183.6 million in base funding will help districts still struggling with the lingering effects of the recession meet their goals of improved student success. Moreover, $5 million in part-time faculty office hours is a critical investment to expand the opportunities for students to have after-class access to their instructors. Finally, increased funding for an array of support services including hunger programs, mental health, and veterans resource centers will significantly help our students succeed in college. FACCC is now advocating on the federal level to ensure that proposed cuts to education in the President’s budget do not undermine advancements at the state level.
Founded in 1953, the Faculty Association of California Community Colleges was named Best Political Voice for Community College Faculty in the State by Sacramento News & Review. Representing over 11,000 members, it serves as the professional membership association for California Community College faculty across the state’s 72 districts and 113 colleges.
