East Los Angeles Higher Education

How can higher education help create a more effective pipeline to community success? On Thursday, April 9, 2015 leaders and community members from six higher education institutions met with elected officials at Cal State Los Angels for the Joint Higher Education Town Hall and Reception to discuss post-secondary education and community issues specific to the East Los Angeles area.

The reception provided an opportunity for participants from area colleges and universities to dialogue with peers and foster greater cross-institutional exchange. Guests were invited to share the experience online via the #JointHigherEd hashstag.

Following the receptions was a Town Hall. Panelists included, State Treasurer John Chaing, Congresswoman Judy Chu and State Senator Ed Hernandez. The panelists addressed relevant subjects such as the growing amount of student loan debt and other issues.
