The Reporter Opinion: Growing a college starts with public input

By Jowel C. Laguerre and Dave Fleming

We’ve all seen the recent headlines detailing the state’s $16 billion deficit and Sacramento’s plan to take millions from public universities and community colleges, further reducing money available for education. And this is when costs for attending the University of California and California State systems are already sky high. The costs of attending a public university in California have risen to at least six times that of attending a community college. Where will it end?

Now, more than ever, Solano Community College is committed to providing high-quality, affordable college options for students transferring to four-year universities and the essential job training our students need to compete in this economy.

Solano College students receive access to a high-quality, college education close to home.

They are able to take university courses at Solano College locations and can earn bachelor degrees through a successful partnership with Sonoma State. We need to expand on this success by partnering with additional four-year universities, such as Sacramento State, Cal Maritime, UC Davis and UC Berkeley.
