California can lead the world in how we serve our students

Making it possible for more students from every background and community to reach for their aspirations and fulfill their promise is essential to the vision of California for All. The Governor’s Council for Post-Secondary Education convenes leaders advising ways to:

  • Connect the experience—aligning segments from kindergarten to post-secondary to build a more coherent, navigable, and efficient learning ecosystem for all students
  • Expand the opportunity—disrupting persistent inequities to foster new access and achievement among students of color, low-income students, and first-generation college goers
  • See the success—supporting student persistence, degree attainment, and entry to high-opportunity occupations
