Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges supports the full spectrum of student services to be funded by college appropriations, and has historically opposed imposition of any new fees on our students, and
Whereas there is recurrent discussion of new student fees either voluntary or mandatory to pay for such things as textbooks, technology, and instructional materials,
Resolved that the Academic Senate oppose the concept of mandating new fees for student services while allowing student governance bodies to democratically initiate fees that improve student services/life (as per current statute).
ASCCC has an ongoing policy of opposition to student fees, while supporting legislation fees that are supported by student governance bodies (e.g. AB 982 in current legislative session).
