WCC Hosts House Subcommittee Hearing

Washtenaw Community College hosted a hearing of the Michigan House Community College Subcommittee on Appropriations Monday afternoon.


WCC President Rose Bellanca told the subcommittee that it would be helpful if the state would help community colleges pay for developmental programs for students who aren't quite ready for college. 

She also thanked the panel for a proposed two-and-a-half percent increase in funding for community colleges.
