President Joe Biden’s American Families Plan is a game-changer for community colleges and minority-serving institutions, campus leaders say. The $1.8 trillion proposed plan could bring a much-needed windfall to institutions serving students most hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Larry Galizio heads an organization that represents campus leaders in California's state community college system. He calls the Biden proposal a “transformative shift in policy” after decades of underfunding for underresourced institutions. Still, he views it as just a beginning step.
