Event description

Description

California's public universities and colleges got a bump in funding this year, but so did the state's prisons. In fact, the percentage of the state budget dedicated to higher education has declined over the past four decades, while the share going toward incarceration has reached an all-time high. Simultaneously, demand for post-secondary education has skyrocketed, and the prison population, at least in the last few years, has plummeted.

Why has California invested so heavily in incarceration while divesting in higher education?

To hear the answer to this question and many others, join the Cal Alumni Association and the Goldman School of Public Policy for “A Matter of Degree: California Spending on Prisons and Higher Education”, the latest in our CALIFORNIA Live! discussion series. Veteran reporter Kim Baldonado ’87 will moderate the discussion with expert panelists Robert Birgeneau, Chancellor Emeritus, UC Berkeley; Carol Liu ’63, C.EAS ’82, former California state senator; and Steven Raphael Ph.D. ’96, professor of public policy at UC Berkeley.

Join the discussion in one of two ways: in person at the Los Angeles Music Center or online via live broadcast. This Eventbrite page includes registration for the in person event. To register to watch live online, please click here.
