What does the bill do?

  • Requires equal compensation between part-time and full-time faculty members.
  • Does not provide funding to support the required increase in part-time faculty pay.

Why is this significant for community colleges?

  • The bill does not contain any funding that will both support the goals of the legislation and reinforce state and local goals of community colleges.
  • The bill could lead to cuts for programs relating to student success and closing achievement gaps, including waiving tuition fees, wrap-around tutoring services, and initiatives intended to alleviate student food and housing insecurity.
