Other Support & Advice
At the request of our local student leaders, the SSCCC does its best to provide support, guidance and advice on almost any issue a student leader may face in the community college system.

Sweeping Matriculation Changes
Focuses matriculation priorities on orientation, assessment and education planning.

Multiple agencies, including the Legislature, investigating the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC).

The Leg Agenda
Board of Governors
Chancellor's Office
Educational Partner
Advisory Committees
Student Senate
What is the importance of students' educational goals vs. system goals for those students?
Sets requirements for disadvantaged students above and beyond those who do not receive the BOGFW.
Some students in performing arts classes and other enrichment classes are pushed out with these changes.
The loss of a students confidence in their college can damage their experience and likelihood of completion; the loss of a community's confidence in their college can reduce the value of degrees and certificates offered by that college, hurting the students graduating.
The Future
Self Sufficiency
Creation of in-house operations administering coordination of the work of the SSCCC.
Best Practices Library
We are currently building the foundation for a library of best practices, models and other resources for local student leaders.

This library will be digitally hosted through our website.
Regional Support Offices
Offices serving each SSCCC region will provide a physical location to access the SSCCC's resources, as well as staff support for regional work and local organizing projects.
Grants for Local Projects
We aim to give back to our colleges not just in services, but with grants as well to support local organizing and leadership projects.
Internships for Students
Both regional and state-level internships will give students paid experience and training in:
Legislative advocacy,
Graphic design,
Outreach and campus organizing,
Policy development and research.
