About Funding Our Future
ICCE partnered with DASB, the Office of the President, and California Assemblymember Jim Beall's office this spring to bring together local legislators and student representatives from community colleges across the Bay Area for a student-focused conversation on the impacts of ongoing budget cuts on higher education.
All De Anza students were encouraged to attend to share their own personal stories with both student and state leaders about how the budget cuts have or would impact their lives.
