Higher Education Study Forum. Public Higher Education in California is at a crossroads. Almost daily, there are news articles about public higher education and the need for reform in terms of accessibility, which includes funding, affordability, preparedness, equity, and opportunities and barriers for success.

Unfortunately, the LWV California does not have a position on public higher education in California that includes the CSU and UC system. As a result, the Los Angeles League cannot comment or advocate for or against any related legislation.

The Higher Education Study Committee was proposed and approved in order to allow our local League to partake in the ongoing education discussion. Come to this meeting for a presentation of the committee's findings and recommendations. Help the committee reach a consensus on the information that will be recommended to the California League.
