Urge Governor Newsom to Increase the Workload Cap for Part-Time Faculty to 85% (09/08/2022)

Dear Colleagues,

Please take a moment and 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.

Please take a moment to sign the letter urging Governor Newsom to sign AB 1856 today and urge your colleagues to do so as well.

In Solidarity,

Jim Mahler, President
