Who Should Attend?

All faculty members, union and academic senate leaders, student leaders and those who work in categorically funded programs are encouraged to attend.

This is your opportunity to network and share ideas with colleagues across the state, participate in professional development sessions, and hear from top decision-makers on policy and budget.

FACCC is advocating for the following priorities on behalf of our faculty members who are ensuring California's Community Colleges continue to provide high-quality and accessible education during this public health crisis:  


Budget Priorities

  • Protect funding for California Community Colleges while prioritizing access so no student is turned away during an economic recession.
  • Increase the proposed Cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) to 3.84 percent to align with the K-12 proposed COLA.
  • Increase funding for part-time faculty health benefits and compensation during and after the public health crisis.
  • Remove the performance-based funding element of the Student Centered Funding Formula.
  • Reallocate Calbright funding to increase investment in the CVC/OEI and boost online education funding for existing colleges.
  • Reject the proposal to make the COLA contingent on the creation or implementation of a policy proposal.

FACCC joined the other faculty groups, including members of the Council of Faculty Organizations (CoFO), for our 2021-22 budget lobbying. 

 

Legislative Priorities

  • Sponsoring
    • AB 1326 (Arambula) would require county human services agencies to designate a staff liaison as a point of contact for community college counselors. 
  • Co-Sponsoring
    • AB 375 (Medina) would increase the percentage of hours part-time faculty may teach to up to 85% of the hours per week as a full-time employee with comparable duties.
