Reminder - Community College Day April 18: With Community College Day fast approaching this Thursday, April 18, please remember to schedule appointments with your legislators before or after our luncheon at the Capitol if you have not done so already! Our message for legislators is straightforward:

  • Support the Governor's recommendation of a 3% increase in operations funding for community colleges.
  • Oppose tuition restraint language that was recommended.
  • Support the Governor's statewide attainment goal of 60 percent college attainment by the year 2030, the proposed MI Reconnect and MI Opportunity Scholarship programs, as well as other resources and policies to achieve the attainment goal.

Appropriations Subcommittee Testimony Continues: The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Higher Education and Community Colleges will continue testimony this week, hearing from the Michigan Community College Association. Both the House and Senate Subcommittees could report budget bills as soon as the last week of April.
