  • Item 6: Progress Report on Funding Gender Gap Research in California Postsecondary
    While previous Commission research points to a growing gender gap in California postsecondary education, the Commission’s ability to pursue the research depends on obtaining outside funding. The staff will report on the progress of requests for funding that have been made to major foundations and provide a copy of a formal Letter of Inquiry to the Lumina Foundation. If research can be funded, it will focus on the declining number of males who move through high school into postsecondary education, especially males from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.
