AB 375 Support Letter

As Chair of the California Part Time Faculty Association (CPFA), I am writing to express resounding support for AB 375 …

HISTORY: It all started when CPFA spearheaded AB 591, a bill that would extend the arbitrary teaching load limit that the state of California has on part-time faculty teaching loads (it’s the only state in the nation to do so).  After a long and difficult process at the capitol, CPFA managed our first tangible win for part-time faculty state-wide; AB 591 ultimately extended the part-time faculty teaching load to 67% of a full-timer’s load. This was a clear demonstration of the success that was possible with CPFA’s unprecedented approach to part-time faculty issues: make the voice of part-time faculty heard by going to the source of legislating action. CPFA has continued its work at the capitol and in Sacramento on new legislative initiatives concerning pay parity, job security, benefits and institutional integration of part-time faculty on a state-wide level, which are integral to the overall quality of education in the CCC system and most importantly to California’s student success rates.
