LCC Board passes resolution

The Lane Community College Board of Education passed a resolution in support of the Oregon Community College Association’s (OCCA) legislative priorities at its March 1 meeting.

The resolution, numbered 678, highlights the critical role that community colleges play in providing education and training to students of all backgrounds and skill levels, the board stated in a news release. OCCA represents the state’s 17 publicly chartered community colleges and their locally elected board members.

The priorities identified for the 2023 Legislative Session include:

• $855 million in ongoing funding and $50 million in one-time funding for the Community College Support 

• A minimum increase of $200 million for the Oregon Opportunity Grant program, Oregon’s primary source of state need-based financial aid for college students.

• Legislation clarifying that community colleges may offer Bachelor of Science in Nursing degrees.
