FACCC Responds to the 2020-21 State Budget

"We deeply appreciate the Legislature and Governor’s efforts to make funding our community colleges a priority. While deferments can present challenges for districts, they are preferable to cuts and we understand the necessity of having a balanced budget during these uncertain economic times." 


  

FACCC Responds to the Supreme Court's Recent Decisions 

"This week’s decisions by the Supreme Court to protect Dreamers by upholding the Deferred Action for Children Arrivals (DACA) program and defend the LGBTQ community from workplace discrimination are necessary rulings for our country and our community colleges."

 

FACCC Endorse Lisa Calderon for Assembly 

"FACCC is proud to endorse Lisa Calderon for Assembly. As a community college graduate, Lisa understands that our colleges and the faculty who educate the over two million students in the system are critical to California's resiliency and economic recovery." Evan Hawkins, Executive Director, Faculty Association of California Community Colleges.


FACCC Responds to the Legislature's Version of the 2020-21 State Budget

"FACCC is deeply appreciative of the Legislature’s support for fully funding Proposition 98 and the California Community Colleges. We further commend the Legislature’s decision to eliminate Calbright College and use those funds for apportionment funding, a basic needs/learning loss/COVID-19 block grant, and supporting part-time faculty."

 

FACCC Responds to the Governor's May Revise

"FACCC understands the magnitude of the COVID-19 public health crisis and the resulting unprecedented economic shock. While we appreciate Governor Newsom’s strong leadership during these difficult times, we are deeply concerned with the proposed budget cuts to California’s community colleges."

 

Calbright: Wasteful Spending During a Public Health Crisis

EdSource published the following commentary piece by FACCC President Debbie Klein outlining why Calbright’s remaining funds would be better used to support part-time faculty and students during the COVID-19 pandemic: 


Calbright Collegea fully online institution serving a tiny student body, is the California community colleges’ newest entity.

The Faculty Association of California Community Colleges (FACCC), a statewide professional association representing 9,000 faculty members at 114 colleges, has long contended that Calbright violates state law by duplicating programs already offered by other community colleges and therefore has neither added to nor enhanced the services provided by the community college system.
