PPIC’s annual Statewide Survey on Californians and Higher Education is the fourth to look at Californians’ views of their public colleges and universities. With substantial fiscal challenges as a backdrop, the survey looks at Californians’ opinions of the three higher education branches and issues related to their funding, including affordability, and adequacy and efficiency of state funding. It also examines the importance that Californians place on college education, higher education’s role in California’s future, and their hopes and concerns for their children’s college careers.

This study was conducted with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.


PPIC president, CEO, and survey director Mark Baldassare is an expert in public opinion, and on political, social, economic, and environmental public attitudes, and is the author of many books and other publications on these subjects.
