About the Program

California’s higher education system is not keeping pace with the changing economy. If population and economic trends continue, the state will fall more than 1 million college graduates short of economic demand by 2030. Join us for a special event as we introduce the PPIC Higher Education Center, featuring a conversation with state leaders about the practical and innovative solutions that can help California meet its higher education challenge.
