CFT faculty leaders to testify on California’s Master Plan for Higher Education

The Assembly Select Committee on the Master Plan for Higher Education has scheduled a public hearing on Friday, May 4, at UC Riverside to examine how to meet the needs of faculty and staff to best support our students.

The faculty panel will help address questions such as:

• “How do you define student success?”
