Friday, September 8, 2017

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto) convened the first hearing of the Assembly Select Committee on the Master Plan for Higher Education at the State Capitol to discuss the status of higher education in California. “Our systems of higher education are envied and emulated throughout the nation, and are critically important to both the upward economic mobility of hundreds of thousands of Californians as well as the state’s economic vitality as the 6th largest economy in the world,” said Assemblymember Berman. “We owe much of this success to the 1960 Master Plan for Higher Education, which has served us well for the last 57 years, and we owe it to both current and future generations to make sure that the Master Plan is updated so that it benefits students and the state for another 50 years.” Learn more in this Assembly Access video.
