Whereas, The Governor's proposed budget calls for approximately 7,000 University of California and California State University-eligible students for the 2004-05 academic year to be redirected to community colleges;
Whereas, The redirected students will be funded out of the 3% growth money in the Governor's proposed budget;
Whereas, The inclusion of the funding of these redirected students in the 3% growth funding could potentially displace funding for traditional community college students; and
Whereas, Concern exists that the redirected students may displace traditional community college students;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges express concern to the Legislature and the Governor that the redirection of UC and CSU students to community colleges will negatively affect the opportunities of traditional community college students.
Will continue to make this argument in 04-05 legislativesession.
