News & Notes
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – On January 10, 2022, Governor Newsom submitted his 2022-23 State Budget proposal to the Legislature, totaling $286 billion - approximately 9% more than last year. This year’s budget is focused on access and affordability, equity, and innovation and includes a five-year commitment to all three higher education segments - University of California, California State University, and California Community Colleges - as well as a 5% increase each year. This multi-year framework invests sustained funding to ensure a commitment from each segment to expand access, equity, and affordability and provides a clear commitment to students by closing the equity gap and assisting students to complete their programs through to their target goals. This framework also creates a more coordinated effort to better align the three segments of higher education.
Sacramento, Calif. - On Saturday, August 14, 2021, the Student Senate for California Community Colleges Board of Directors took a position to support the requirement of COVID-19 vaccinations for colleges that are reopening with flexibility where vaccines are not possible due to medical conditions or sincerely held religious beliefs. The SSCCC urges administrators, staff, faculty, and students to follow local safety protocols in order to protect themselves and others and to prevent the spread of the virus.
