Higher Education for a Strong Economy

California Competes: Higher Education for a Strong Economy aims to solve the state’s thorny social and economic problems by conducting rigorous higher education and workforce policy research. Through our research, we guide decision-makers in developing and implementing policies that bolster vibrant communities where every Californian can engage, contribute, and succeed.

We envision a California where our state and regional economies and communities thrive, fueled by equitable post-secondary and workforce opportunities and outcomes for all Californians.
