MEDIA STATEMENT — California Community Colleges Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley Issues Statement on Gov. Gavin Newsom’s 2019-20 Budget Proposal

January 10, 2019

Sacramento — California Community Colleges Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley issued the following statement on Gov. Gavin Newsom’s 2019-20 budget proposal:

“Extending the College Promise will give more Californians the opportunity to gain the skills and credentials needed to succeed in today’s economy. The College Promise incentivizes colleges to align with K-12 and university partners while adopting student success reforms and complements California’s historic commitment to free tuition for low-income community college students by supporting colleges in providing free tuition to all full-time, first-time students. We will work with the governor and Legislature to expand this opportunity to put students first and continue to expand need-based financial aid to cover the total cost of attendance. We are heartened by the governor’s proposals to significantly expand aid for students who are raising children and expand competitive Cal Grants. These investments will give more students ability to achieve their educational goals and build better lives.”
