Save City College of San Francisco

      San Francisco, CA

City College of San Francisco is the largest community college in California and one of the largest in the nation. It serves over 90,000 students annually. Due to repeated cuts from the state budget, CCSF has been told it is too big and must scale down. While there is some room for consolidation and trimming, rumors are spreading that the goal is to redefine the mission of CCSF to that of a Junior College, serving only students who plan to transfer to 4-year universities. This would disenfranchise thousands of San Francisco residents - seniors, English language learners, high school dropouts earning a GED, those who take classes to enhance their job skills, veterans, ex-offenders, disabled students and more. CCSF provides an indispensible service to the community.  We are calling on the Mayor and the CCSF Board of Trustees to maintain CCSF's mission as a COMMUNITY College, serving the entire San Francisco community.

      I have attended city college before and it is a great institution. I would like for it to be there for the years to come so I can pursue other interests in life.

      Save City!

      I have had incredible professors during my time studying music at City College. I have taken what I learned in my classes with Professor Kamatani and Professor Muleon and gone on to work with a local production company as Vocal Director and Arranger. I would not have been able to get here were it not for them. Please do not deprive other students the chance to advance their careers just because they don't wish to transfer to another institution.

      I attended this school and earned my A.A. from here before I moved on to a 4 year university.

      City College is a leader in cultural enrichment, civic engagement, and life-long learning. Also, our transfer students do exceptionally well at the UCs and other four year universities. Our student should not be punished by an economy that is already limiting their job opportunities. We will do our job to make our operation more efficient, but we must not be forced to change our mission. If wealthy people resumed paying their fair share of taxes, we would be thriving.
