Equity for Contingent Faculty artwork

For too long, too many part-time faculty in California’s community college system have gone without healthcare benefits. The CFT has launched a statewide campaign to secure health insurance coverage for all part-time faculty in the community colleges.

We need you to join us! Take part in our current actions — send a letter to the California Legislature and take our survey. Part-time faculty are essential to our students’ success, and like all workers they deserve access to quality, affordable healthcare. Join with other part-time faculty around the state. Together, we can do this!


Send our NEW letter! Help ensure health coverage gets to the part-time faculty who need it most

Write a letter now to support healthcare for part-time faculty

After months of advocacy, we have now passed the critical juncture of the May Revision with the governor’s $200 million proposal to fund healthcare for part-time faculty remaining in the state budget!

But to ensure this health coverage benefit gets to the faculty who need it most, we need the Legislature to make some changes to the Part-time Faculty Health Insurance Program. Please write the state Legislature today and urge passage of these program changes that will help improve the issues now limiting part-timer access to healthcare.

  • Eligibility: Offer healthcare to all part-time faculty working at least 40% of a full-time load (with immediate eligibility)
  • Affordability: Cap employee healthcare contributions at 10% of premium cost
  • Parity: Offer part-time faculty the same healthcare provided to full-time faculty
  • Reimbursement: Provide reimbursement for eligible “freeway flyers”

Legislators need to hear from you! Please send a letter to today! It’s fast and easy. 



Part-time faculty — we need you to complete our 2022 survey!

Take the CFT 2022 Part-Time Faculty Survey

Welcome to CFT’s Survey of Part-Time Faculty

By completing this survey, you’re helping CFT’s statewide campaign to win quality, affordable healthcare for all part-time faculty in California.

The results will strengthen CFT’s advocacy in the state Legislature, and inform local unions negotiating improvements in your districts.

This survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete and is intended for faculty who are teaching in the 2021-22 academic year on a part-time, contingent basis. All data and results will be kept confidential and no data will be connected to any individual respondent.
