The Northwest Community College Students’ Union says the provisional budget is bad for its students.
Mikael Jensen is a NWCC Students’ Union organizer, and he says the school is now asking for outreach and consultation on its budget, just as students have finished classes and left campus.
He says the school and Board of Governors are turning a deaf ear to students’ demands, and that there isn’t any meaningful consultation.
Jensen targets the decision not to use transitionary funding to keep the Carrer and College Preparation program free.
He says it’ll be a huge barrier for people to prepare for further education or enter the workforce.
The budget has been presented to NWCC’s Board of Governors and is currently under review.
