Urge Governor Newsom to increase the workload cap for part-time community college faculty
Please take a moment to urge Governor Newsom to sign AB 1856, which would formally increase the workload cap available to part-time faculty from 67% up to 85% of a full-time faculty workload in California’s community colleges.
Under the current law, too many part-time faculty members are forced to work in multiple community college districts to piece together a full time schedule, hurting not only their ability to make a living, but their ability to participate in the campus community and be a resource to students.

No one in higher ed is fixing this overlooked crisis for instructors
It’s time to fix the two-tiered faculty system at California’s community colleges
“Part-time faculty teach the majority of courses in California’s community colleges; without them, the largest community college system in America would grind to a halt. But lack of health care and other benefits, lower pay and artificial limitations on how many courses they teach condemns far too many part-time community college instructors to below-poverty line incomes. It’s time for this to change.”
