Glendale Community College officials expressed optimism about the college's budget this week, saying the school is projected to bring in about a million dollars more in revenue than it did during the previous school year. That figure, $78.4 million, comes short of the college's 2010-11 revenue of $81.2 million, but slightly higher than the $74.5 million it largely operated on in 2011-12 and the $77.3 million last year. This year marks the first in five that the state has provided the state community college system with a 1.57% cost of living funding increase, which represents a “sharp contrast,” to the state budget cuts the college has seen in previous years, said Ron Nakasone, executive vice president of administrative services for GCC. “We were actually able to increase class offerings this year and brought back a full winter intersession,” Nakasone said.

Hundreds of students at Glendale Community College graduated Friday, leaving behind a campus struggling to accommodate future generations while facing an uncertain future themselves. In the face of a lackluster job market, many students are choosing to stay within the college sphere, transferring to four-year institutions. But even those campuses are starting to tighten the flow of incoming students as they deal with their own budget woes. During the last 18 months, cost-cutting measures at Glendale Community College have included the reduction of summer session, the elimination of winter session, pay reductions for the management, faculty and classified employee bargaining units, and early-retirement incentives for faculty members.

Glendale Community College officials estimate that enrollment of full-time students won't reach their expected goal this year as the college continues to recover from years of tightening its budget to respond to financial cuts made by the state. By the end of the 2013-14 academic year, officials predict they will have 1.1% more full-time equivalent students enrolled than the prior year, although they had hoped for a 2% increase. Glendale Community College receives $4,636 in state funds for each full-time equivalent student it serves.
