'Save City College' Rallying Cry for Staff, Faculty and Students
By Jamie Goldberg, Mission Local
Bob Price stood in front of the hundreds of people who crowded into an auditorium at City College’s Mission Campus Wednesday night and yelled, “Whose college?”
“Our college!” the crowd responded.
The huge group of staff, faculty, students and members of the community gathered Wednesday to launch the Save City College Coalition, an alliance of the campus and the community in the fight to save City College from closure.
“We are going against the agenda of very powerful groups, and we need the community to succeed,” said Price, a chemistry teacher at City College. “If you want to do that, you need a movement.”
In a July report, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges said City College was in danger of losing its accreditation due to poor finances and governance. It has until March 15 to make the changes requested by the commission or face closure.
