About the Program
The California Community Colleges are undertaking a range of efforts to boost the number of students earning degrees and transferring to four-year universities. Assembly Bill (AB) 705, which focuses on getting students into transfer-level courses, is an especially important reform. What kind of changes might we expect to see in the AB 705 era? Marisol Cuellar Mejia will outline the findings of a new report that addresses this question, and an expert panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities of AB 705 implementation.
