Transforming Basic Needs Supports In California Higher Education
Postsecondary credentials are necessary to access living wage jobs, but for millions of Californians these credentials remain out of reach due to inadequate support for student basic needs. As part of the 2021-2022 budget, California has invested millions of dollars in making sure that challenges like housing and food insecurity cease to be impediments to student success. University leaders responsible for developing the spending plans for these dollars have a historic opportunity to advance state goals for student success and racial equity, but only if resources are invested wisely. The Center for Equitable Higher Education, with input from California's student basic needs community, has developed a set of research-based recommendations that can help ensure that colleges and universities make each dollar count.

Join the Michelson 20MM Foundation and the Center for Equitable Higher Education as we discuss transformative approaches to invest new funding to meet student basic needs.
