    Notice of Meeting

    On Tuesday, October 23, 2012, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on higher education in California. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 2040 at the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    The Little Hoover Commission is reviewing California’s higher education system. In this hearing, the Commissioners will explore proposals to operate the system more efficiently, the state’s role in fostering alliances between regional education institutions and performance-based funding.

    The Commission will hear first about new approaches to expand higher education opportunities from a senior research fellow with the Center for Studies in Higher Education, University of California, Berkeley. The Commission will also be given an overview of The Long Beach Promise Program from representatives from each participating institution: an assistant to the superintendent of the Long Beach Unified School District; the superintendent and president of the Long Beach Community College; and the president of California State University, Long Beach. The Long Beach panelists have been asked to discuss key elements of the program and how they could be applied on a statewide basis. The Commission also will be given the opportunity to learn about performance-based funding from the president of the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems, along with a senior policy specialist from the National Conference of State Legislatures.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments. Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the Blue Anchor Building at 1400 10th Street, Conference Room #202, Sacramento. An additional teleconference location accessible to the public during the business meeting will be at the University of Nevada, Reno, Lawlor Event Center, 1500 North Virginia Street, Reno, Nevada.
