The 2014/15 Kern Community College District Leadership Academy got the opportunity to meet with State Senator Jean Fuller prior to the Senate Session during the Community College League of California Annual Legislative Conference in Sacramento in January. The Conference provides a unique opportunity to connect with other advocates and learn the latest news on higher education in California. Attendees learned about new members of legislative committees, legislative proposals affecting colleges and student learning, and advocacy strategies for the current legislate year.

Advocacy – to change “what is” into “what should be”.
