Last week, we hosted our second annual Champions of Higher Education celebration in downtown Los Angeles with 150 of our closest friends.
We shared a beautiful evening honoring nine California Community Colleges and four California State Universities for their
in implementing the Associate Degree for Transfer. We also honored California Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León for his legislative leadership on higher education policy, former President of the College Futures Foundation, Julia Lopez, for supporting the programs and policies that help more students reach their college dreams, the University of California Board of Regents and UC President Janet Napolitano for their support of undocumented and DACAmented students, and
, for exceptional journalism covering California’s higher education landscape.
It is truly our pleasure to acknowledge and celebrate the good work happening at our colleges and universities each and every day to improve student success. We are so thankful for those individual champions who make it their life’s work to ensure students reach their college dreams.
