Overcoming Barriers to Higher Education in California: A Student Panel

When:                  12:00 pm, Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Where:                Berkeley Public Library, 2090 Kittredge Street, 3rd floor community room

A panel of seven University of California Berkeley students will discuss how they overcame academic and financial difficulties to reach and thrive at the university.  The students come from varied backgrounds, and faced many hurdles to earn a college degree.  Some were accepted into the UC system directly from high school while others transferred from community colleges.  Learn how these students overcame their obstacles.

The forum is presented by the League of Women Voters Berkeley Albany Emeryville as part of its participation in a current state-wide study of access to and funding of higher education in California. All are welcome to join the discussion at this free, public and accessible meeting.
