  Act Today to Help us Support our Community College Students!

Senate Bill 5194 addresses social injustices and poverty through our community colleges. It calls for eliminating obstacles for first-generation, underrepresented minority, and disabled students and demands that colleges be accountable for campus equity and inclusion via financial support; guided pathways; mentorships; advising; counseling; integrated basic education skills and training; and an increase of diversity of students, faculty, and staff. In addition, the bill calls for the resumption of funding, after a 12-year lapse, of more full-time faculty positions and pay equity among faculty.
