Building a Strong Foundation to Ensure Success

As policymakers engage in budget negotiations to fund the 115th community college, the Chancellor’s Office is conducting a transparent stakeholder process to further develop the fully online community college and ensure it best serves the 2.5 million working Californians across the state who currently cannot access the education pathways they need for upward mobility. Stakeholders across the state are highly engaged participants in this important dialogue with the Chancellor’s Office – including employer, workforce, community, civic, labor and education leaders.

Through a series of meet-ups, design thinking labs, listening sessions and faculty engagement sessions, the Chancellor’s Office is relying on the voices of Californians who best understand the needs of stranded workers and our economy. Learn how we are engaging diverse stakeholder groups to ensure the Governor’s proposal is a quality product that reflects the needs of our state:

What Our Partners Are Saying

“Taking a new approach to meeting the needs of the 2.5 million working adults who don’t have a college degree would expand access to quality higher education for these underserved students while providing the flexibility, affordability and support they need to advance their employment and stay relevant in their jobs and careers.”
- Judy C. Miner, Chancellor, Foothill-De Anza Community College District
“If the platform leverages the considerable talent of our community college faculty, and taps into existing efforts to engage industry, it will become an effective tool to meet the needs of "stranded" workers and strengthen California’s vibrant economy.”
- Carl Guardino, President and CEO, Silicon Valley Leadership Group
“With the sixth largest economy in the world, it is imperative that California invest in educating and training more adults to meet the increasing demand for a skilled workforce and fuel our growing economy. Our success depends on the workforce of tomorrow, and this proposal puts California on a path toward greater prosperity.”
- Bob Gutierrez, President, San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
