Report 01-7a: California and Mexico: The Realities and Possibilities For Higher Education
Published by The California Postsecondary Education CommissionNovember 2001View Full Publication
In October 2002, the California Postsecondary Education Commission held two days of special meetings on both sides of the California/Mexico border to discuss mutual concerns about the regionís higher education future. Traveling first to the California Imperial Valley community of Calexico and then across the border to Mexicali in Baja California, Mexico, members of the Commission met with local educators, governmental representatives, educational administrators, and other interested parties from both countries. In particular, the Commission wanted to address the role of off-campus centers in meeting the educational needs of area residents, increasing awareness of the bi-national and border issues that might impact higher education, and identifying outreach initiatives that might be brought to bear on a wide range of problems involving not only educations but related issues such as health care and employment opportunities. This report summarizes the presentations of several speakers at the October meeting and captures much of the discussion over the course of the two days.
