Identifying the future of the California Community Colleges.

The Chancellor's Office, with support from the Foundation for California Community Colleges, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The James Irvine Foundation, and College Futures Foundation, is developing a strategic vision for the California Community College system - a long-term, ambitious vision grounded in the needs of the state. The purpose of the project is to articulate the importance of the Community Colleges, identify clear goals for the system, and provide broad recommendations for how to accomplish those goals. 

Virtual Town Hall 

In April and May, the California Community Colleges held a Virtual Town Hall to ask Californians how the community colleges can improve. Over 500 responses were received and will inform the strategic vision. The hope is that the resulting document will serve as a guide for the Chancellor's Office and Board of Governors over the next several years. The draft strategic vision will be presented to the Board of Governors in July of 2017.
