1 Senate Finance Commi-ee Tes0mony of Public Community Colleges Presenta(on by: Dr. Richard Rhodes Chair - Texas Associa/on of Community Colleges President, Aus/n Community College Panel to Assist with Answering Ques(ons from Senate Finance Commi<ee Ms. Lydia San0bañez Chair, Community College Associa/on of Texas Trustees Board of Trustees, Temple College Dr. Johne-e McKown Chair- Elect, Texas Associa/on of Community Colleges President, McLennan Community College Dr. Rey García President & CEO, Texas Associa/on of Community Colleges February 17, 2015

2 Community Colleges are building better pathways for our students regardless of where they begin: Pathways that result in a certificate or associate s degree Pathways that result in transfer to a university Pathways that result in enhanced workforce skills The Texas Association of Community Colleges (TACC) and the Community College Association of Texas Trustees (CCATT) have made the success of our students our only priority and have developed a 5-point legislative agenda to ensure student success. I. Workforce and Skills Alignment II. Measuring and Funding Success III. College Readiness IV. Transfer and Articulation V. Texans in Community Colleges With the support of the State of Texas for community colleges, we can create better opportunities for students and a better future for the state. February 17,

3 Measuring and Funding Success State Funding The 83rd Legislature adopted the Student Success model for funding community college instruction. The three components of the funding model are 1) Core college operations ($1 million per district; $50 million total), 2) Student Success Points (10% of remainder), and 3) Contact Hour Funding (90% of the remainder). The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board recommended $2.011 billion for community colleges in the biennium. TACC/CCATT endorse the Coordinating Board s recommended level of investment by the State to community colleges. $2.011 Billion Student Success Appropriations Request Core Operations $1 million/district $50 million Student Success Points $10% (less core) Contact Hour Funding 90% (less core) $50,000,000 $196,100,000 $1,764,900,000 February 17,

4 Student Success Points Texas Community Colleges support student success no matter where students are starting from or where their educational paths take them. The Student Success Points system adopted last session recognizes student achievement along many pathways: from successful completion of college readiness courses to intermediate success measures to successful outcome metrics. The model also pinpoints areas where metrics need to be developed and then included in the measurement of student success. Complete Math DE, 1 point Complete reading DE,.5 point Complete writing DE,.5 point ABE ESL GED Complete Developmental Work Student Success Points Model Pass 1st college math course, 1 point Pass 1st college reading course,.5 point Pass 1st college writing course,.5 point Complete 15 semester credit hours, 1 point Complete 30 semester credit hours, 1 point First College Credit 15 credits 1 Term College-Level 30 credits 1 Year College-Level Degree/Certificate Awarded, 2 points Critical Field, 2.25 Certificate Associate s Degree Transfer to university after completing 15 semester credit hours, 2 points Employment Bachelor s Degree For the biennium, student success points should be funded at a rate that is no less than the rate student success points were funded for the biennium ($185 per student success point). Funding at this rate will meet the requirements of Rider #23 in the community college section of last session s General Appropriations Act. Rider #23 stipulated that the allocation system for student success points should compare the performance of each college district to itself. February 17,

5 Measuring and Funding Success Employee Benefits Student success cannot be achieved without quality faculty and support staff. Colleges must be able to recruit and retain such talent, which requires providing excellent employee benefits. During the 83rd legislative session, an agreement was reached to share the funding of employee benefits equally between community colleges and the state. We want to extend our appreciation to the state. Continuing our partnership in providing these employee benefits is vital to the success of our students. STARLINK/Virtual College of Texas STARLINK and the Virtual College of Texas are the two community programs that enhance distance learning opportunities funded by the state and are critical to the student success initiative. TACC/CCATT supports the request for $250,000 additional funds for STARLINK and the request for $250,000 additional funds for the Virtual College of Texas. Workforce and Skills Alignment Skills Development Fund TACC/CCATT recommend continued and enhanced funding for the Skills Development Fund to expand the ability of community colleges to work with multiple employers to better serve students and workforce needs in each region around the state. Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) TACC/CCATT recommend continued and enhanced funding for the Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) program. This program allows community colleges across the state to purchase critical equipment needed to provide state-ofthe-art workforce training. Bachelor of Applied Technology The state should continue to provide funds for the Bachelor of Applied Technology (BAT). BATs are meeting the workforce needs of the local business community. Consideration should be given by the 84th Legislature to allow limited expansion of BATs throughout the state. February 17,

6 College Readiness New Mathways Project Thank you for your continued support in SB 2 of the New Mathways Project ($2.4 million), Charles A. Dana Center, University of Texas at Austin. Texans in Community Colleges Financial Aid The ability to afford college opportunities is an issue that many students struggle to overcome. In Texas, less than ten percent of all grant aid to community college students comes from the state of Texas through the Texas Educational Opportunity Grant (TEOG) program. These dollars are critical in allowing a student to pay for his/her education. TACC/CCATT recommend that any increase in Texas Grants funding should also include a corresponding increase in funding for the Texas Educational Opportunity Grant program. Adult Basic Education Community colleges are a primary provider of Adult Basic Education (ABE) opportunities across Texas. This is part of the state directed mandate for our colleges in the State Education code, which requires community colleges in Texas to be open enrollment institutions. TACC/CCATT recommend that the State should provide sufficient funding for Adult Basic Education. Currently, Texas only provides funding to serve approximately 100,000 statewide out of more than 3 million eligible. February 17,

7 Texas community colleges enroll nearly 700,000 students - making it the largest sector of higher education. 74% of all Freshmen enrolled in Texas are at a community college. 76% of all minority Freshmen are enrolled in a Texas community college. Community colleges are by far the largest provider of Dual Credit opportunities - 103,500 students last year (96% of all dual credit in Texas). Community colleges serve as gateways for students seeking transfer. Of all the bachelor degrees from Texas universities, 78% have some community college hours on the transcript. The total number of transfer students from community colleges to universities has increased 53 percent since Degree completion has increased 115% since Community colleges are the provider of workforce training - linking local and regional demand with effective training opportunities. - Community colleges educate and train 60% of all nurses. - Community colleges educate and train 85% of all first responders. In the next decade, Texas will create 4.8 million jobs in Healthcare, Information Technology, Skilled Trades, and Business & Finance. Most of these jobs will require some level of higher education (including a certificate or Associate s degree) and all have pathways that begin at a Texas Public Community College. February 17,
