California’s continued budget woes, rising costs of college education, and the weak economy continue to challenge public higher education systems. This survey is the third in a series on higher education, conducted with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, which examines Californians’ attitudes and perceptions of higher education in their state.

Residents reveal their preferences for funding higher education, their opinions about the performance of public colleges and universities, and their views of the state’s ability to plan for future higher education needs. The survey also examines the overall affordability of higher education, societal trends in higher education, and parental aspirations and concerns for their children’s education.
Lunch will be provided and there is no charge to attend. Pre-registration is requested.
