As outside influences threaten to overwhelm the combined voice of students, faculty, and administrators, the past experiences of retired faculty can guide our advocacy message into the future. Take this opportunity to help shape and advocate for the institution and students you spent a career advancing.  

Please join FACCC Governor for Retired Faculty, Ian Walton, to “keep fighting for your principles” by joining FACCC as a retired member.


FACCC advocates on behalf of its membership to strengthen the position of faculty in the State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS), protect defined benefit pensions, and to ensure the Legislature continues to support and fund pensions for faculty in the California Community Colleges.
