The California Postsecondary Education Commission's Public Agenda: Priorities for Action. Commission Report.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This document is designed to address the educational needs of the growing and diverse California population. It outlines and describes the roles and responsibilities of the California Postsecondary Education Commission. In addition to recurring responsibilities related to data collection and reporting, information dissemination, and legislative requirements, the priority activities fall under four thematic areas identified by the Commission: (1) growth and access to educational opportunity; (2) preparation for a postsecondary degree; (3) baccalaureate degree attainment; and (4) workforce preparation and economic development. The document also outlines strategies for implementing the public agenda, beginning with using the Public Agenda document as the framework for policy, planning, and decision making. Providing programs and services to meet the state's most critical needs and nurturing programmatic mission differentiation in a coordinated system of higher education and increasing awareness of higher education's fundamental value to society and the economy are also advised.
