Chancellor Thor's Budget Message

Dear Colleagues,
Governor’s budget proposal & enrollment
Good news I wanted to share is that Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2015-16 budget proposal for community colleges is being hailed as the best in many years. It includes an increase in base funding, additional dollars to support student success, a 1.58 percent cost-of-living adjustment, plus funding for enrollment growth. One area of concern for us, however, continues to be enrollment. As of today – census day – we’ve down from winter quarter 2014 by 28 FTES, or full-time-student equivalents, continuing our trend of flat or declining enrollment. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that California’s economy stays strong and that the California Legislature supports the governor’s budget.
