Who We Are

Since 1953, FACCC has provided focused representation for the community college faculty to promote funding, academic freedom, and retirement benefits. With members across every campus in California, FACCC continues to strengthen the position of faculty in the State Capitol, the State Chancellor’s Office, and the State Teachers’ Retirement System.

FACCC is faculty driven and professionally managed. Its board of seasoned faculty professionals is dedicated to working cooperatively with your unions and academic senates to ensure that faculty voices are heard in the halls of government and across the state.

What We Do

FACCC is dedicated to representing your interests in state and federal government. Its professional staff and volunteer leaders testify at hearings, meet with legislators, and organize policy forums to promote the message of community college faculty.

FACCC communicates with its members through print, electronic, and social media.

FACCC’s sister corporation, FACCC Education Institute (FACCC EI), organizes workshops and conferences for faculty across California. FACCC EI also provides policymakers with research materials on community college issues.

FACCC and FACCC EI are governed by a 22-member board which receives guidance from 10 standing committees. Your participation and input are needed.

Policy of Non-Interference

FACCC endeavors to work cooperatively with all community college faculty organizations, maintaining a policy of strict neutrality as to the selection, organizational structure, governance, and leadership of other faculty organizations.
