Higher Education as a Driver of Economic Mobility

December 12, 2018 · 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Capitol Event Center 1020 11th Street, second floor Sacramento, CA 95814

About the Program

Higher education is one of the main ways that Californians—especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds—can move up the income ladder. But too few Californians earn a college degree. PPIC research director Sarah Bohn will outline findings from a new report that looks at the numerous benefits of a college degree, the challenges of improving college completion, and how to build upon recent progress and promote upward economic mobility for all Californians.

This event is supported with funding from the PPIC Corporate Circle and the PPIC Donor Circle. This research was supported with funding from the College Futures Foundation and the Sutton Family Fund.

Please register in advance. There is no charge to attend, but space is limited. Lunch will be provided.
