Petition Closed

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.
