Dear faculty colleagues,

We are writing to encourage you to stand in solidarity with our colleagues at City College of San Francisco, who are fighting to protect their jobs and maintain a vital institution of higher education in the Bay Area.

Without a budget mandate, CCSF Board of Trustees voted to approve a plan to lay off 50 tenure and tenure-track faculty, a move that would necessitate laying off hundreds of part-time faculty as well. These layoffs would close hundreds of fully enrolled courses, impacting thousands of students and perpetuating CCSF’s ongoing crisis. Cuts are a downward spiral that ultimately mean failing to meet community demand. The real long term solution to the under-funding of CCSF is more support, not downsizing. It’s time CCSF moves in a new direction, but to do that, we need to take action!

RSVP now ( for the CCSF Tuesday, March 15, Day of Action
