California faces the dichotomy of an economic recovery that exacerbates inequalities for our most vulnerable residents while further enriching the wealthy. The state needs a plan for an equitable recovery and such a plan should include a commitment and investment in California’s Community Colleges. This session will address scenarios shaping the budget debate going forward. Attendees will hear information focused on supporting colleges as they implement the 2020-21 state budget. This session will also cover important fiscal updates from the Chancellor’s Office. Discuss the latest developments with regard to the state budget, fiscal and facilities issues and other topics of interest to CBOs.
