The Student Senate for California Community Colleges works to promote and safeguard access for current and future students to California public higher education in accordance with the Master Plan for Higher Education through system participatory governance, legislative and policy advocacy, and regional support and development.
News & Notes
The Student Senate for California Community Colleges would like to share an opportunity for community college students to advocate for more financial aid by filling out this form to support an important bill, SB 291, that addresses the critical issue of increasing financial aid for California community college students to cover the true cost of college.
As we reach the end of the semester and the year, I would like to share with you what the SSCCC has accomplished to date and what is next. At the beginning of my term, I sought to ensure students knew who we are and what we do. Here are some of our accomplishments to date:
Sacramento, CA - Earlier this morning, the Governor signed the SSCCC-sponsored AB 1504 (Medina). The bill requires a California Community College (CCC) campus to collect a student representation fee of $2 per semester/quarter if the CCC has a student body association. By signing this legislation into law, Governor Newsom and the legislature have acknowledged the need for California community college students to have a strong organized voice advocating on their behalf. The SSCCC is appreciative of Assemblymember Jose Medina for carrying this legislation. His support for funding an organized student voice demonstrates his belief in empowering students to participate in policy decisions affecting their education.
