A new policy brief released by NextGen Policy, a social justice advocacy organization, and Compton College upholds the college as a model for how other California community colleges can address food and housing insecurity on their campuses. The brief outlines a variety of ways Compton College has sought to ensure students have access to food and housing, including having students fill out a single form to convey all their needs rather than requiring them to go to multiple offices for help, and employing a director of student basic needs and success.
