California’s Black families and students know the value of an education. Today, more Black students are graduating from high school, going to college, and earning degrees than ever before. But for many of the 2.2 million Black Californians, the dream of going to college and crossing the graduation stage remains an illusion. California cannot remain innovative, entrepreneurial, or economically competitive without closing persistent racial equity gaps in education and ensuring more Black students go to college and graduate.

On February 20th, the Campaign for College Opportunity will release the State of Higher Education for Black Californians, a report that provides comprehensive data on the current state of college access and completion for Black residents in our state and what it means for our economy.

During this Webinar, state experts will address some of the greatest education barriers that Black students in California face and will share recommendations to ensure the success of Black students.

Featured speakers include:

  • Michele Siqueiros, President, Campaign for College Opportunity
  • J. Luke Wood, Ph.D., Associate Vice President, Faculty Diversity & Inclusion, San Diego State University
  • Teresa W. Aldredge, Ed.D., President, Board of Directors, Umoja Community Education Foundation
