2022 Basic Needs Summit
For the past several years, the Affordability, Food, and Housing Access Taskforce have gathered together students, practitioners, and reform advocates for an annual summit to discuss high impact practices that address affordability, housing, and food insecurity concerns. We invite you to join us Friday, December 9, 2022, for our next conference hosted in person by San Bernardino Valley College and presented by Ellucian.
For too long, California Community College students have been under-funded and under-resourced, resulting in disproportionately high levels of food insecurity, homelessness, and poverty. The growing income gap and systemic patterns of racism have become a central social justice and moral dilemma facing our colleges. The 2022 December conference will address questions such as: How are we going to ensure that our students are housed and fed? How can we convince policymakers and change agents that food, housing, and meeting basic needs are fundamental rights for everyone? How are we implementing changes within our own institutions? How can we become better at addressing this critical moral dilemma?
Who Should Attend
The Basic Needs Summit is geared toward administrators, faculty, classified staff, and student leaders from all areas of the colleges that are working on or interested in helping alleviate basic needs insecurity in our communities. We also invite our community college partners and advocates to join us for this important basic needs discussion and convening.
Please note this event will be held in person and registration will open in October 2022.
