Proposed Establishment of the Vacaville Higher Education Center of the Solano County Community College District. A Report to the Governor and Legislature in Response to a Request from the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
In this document, the California Postsecondary Education Commission responds to a request by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges to review the need for and location of the Vacaville Higher Education Center, a permanent educational center in the Solano County Community College District. The proposed site for the center is just over 60 acres in size, which suggests that it will never evolve into a full-service community college. It is the Commission's view that the long-range projections for the center are fundamentally sound, that by the time of its proposed 1996 opening, much of the "sticker shock" over fees will have dissipated, and that students will be attending in increasing numbers. The Commission thus recommends that: (1) the Vacaville Higher Education Center should be approved as an educational center of the Solano County Community College District; and (2) the Vacaville Higher Education Center should become eligible for Sate capital outlay funding as of the 1994-95 fiscal year. Appended in this report are the Board of Governors' Agenda Item 12, March 11-12, 1993; Letters of Support for the Vacaville Higher Education Center; and the Letter to Roland K. Allan from William L. Storey, April 8, 1992. Contains 18 references. (VWC)
