Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown Introduced Bill to Give Student-Athletes Full Scholarships and Additional Stipend

Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown Introduced Bill to Give Student-Athletes Full Scholarships and Additional Stipend

 

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) amended AB 475, which will require public universities in California to award five year scholarships to their student-athletes starting in 2015. Additionally, schools will be required to cover the full cost of attendance and include an additional $3,600 student-athlete participation stipend.

 

“A year-to-year scholarship does not foster retention and convey that universities have a serious investment in seeing their student-athletes graduate,” said Assemblymember Brown. “Coaches and athletic departments will have to change their approach to recruiting student-athletes.”

The NCAA is responsible for governing an industry that generates over $11 billion annually in revenue. NCAA governs the amount of aid that universities can award each student-athlete and the length of the award. These scholarships do not cover the full cost of attendance to universities in California and require that student athletes sign away their ability to profit from their athletic accomplishments in perpetuity.

 

AB 475, which is being sponsored by the National College Players Association, will require all scholarships offered by public universities in California to be guaranteed for five years. Additionally, all universities with media and licensing revenues in excess of $20 million would be mandated to cover the full cost of attendance and provide the additional $3,600 stipend.

“It is unconscionable for California to allow a non-profit organization generating billions of dollars in profits to the detriment of college athletes, to dictate the educational policies and practices of our states public universities,” Assemblymember Brown concluded.

AB 475 was assigned to the Assembly Committee on Education.

 

Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown represents the 47th Assembly District, which includes Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Rialto, San Bernardino, and the unincorporated communities of Bloomington and Muscoy.

SAN BERNARDINO -Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) delivered the keynote address at the inaugural Pioneer Breakfast hosted by the Black Faculty, Staff and Student Association at California State University, San Bernardino. The event was held Friday, March 5 at the Santos Manuel Student Union and celebrated pioneering African Americans from the Inland Empire that have made and continue to make significant contributions to the community.

 

The 2013 honorees were: The Honorable Wilmer Amina Carter, retired, California State Legislature; Walter Hawkins, a founding member of the Black Faculty, Staff and Student Association and retired director of research policy and analysis at Cal State San Bernardino’s department of undergraduate studies; Dr. Jean Peacock, an alumna, founding member of the Black Faculty, Staff and Student Association and professor of psychology and former assistant dean in the university’s College of Social and Behavioral Sciences; Dr. Mildred Henry, the first African American to become a tenured professor at the university’s College of Education and now a professor emeritus; Lois Carson, a member of the university’s first graduating class in 1967; Sam Fellows, alumnus and adjunct professor, who holds a master’s degree in education and social work from the university; and Dr. Milton Clark, an alumnus and the first Black associate professor of English at the university, who is currently the university’s associate vice president for undergraduate studies and was recently named the university’s first chief diversity officer.

 

During her address she spoke about the pioneering firsts and sacrifices that were made by each of the honorees on behalf of the Black faculty, staff and student population. During the late 1970s, these individuals set the tone for equality in terms of hiring, retention and promotion within the Black faculty at Cal State San Bernardino.  Among their primary duties was to promote diversity within the university.

 

As a group, they sought to increase Black student recruitment and improve Black student graduation rates. They also engaged the community, specifically the Black community and worked together to improve campus policies that would eventually benefit Black student recruitment.

 

“I was honored to be a part of this special event. I enjoyed talking about my friends and the tremendous impact they’ve made in the community, state and for some, the nation. This special recognition was well deserved,” said Assemblymember Brown.

 

Following her address, she acknowledged the upcoming Class of 2013 graduates and assured them that she’s working very hard to address their needs by creating an environment for job growth.

 

She spoke about her introduction of AB 285, a bill to improve the quality of life for residents in the 47th Assembly District and throughout the state by promoting small business growth, which will translate to job creation within some of the state’s highest unemployment areas. AB 285 was the first bill that she introduced during the 2013-2014 legislative session, signifying the importance of jobs in the district.
