Despite its vast higher education system, California stands out as one of only two states without comprehensive oversight or coordination of higher education. Our new report, “Charting a Course for California’s Colleges: State Leadership in Higher Education,” examines how California and states across the nation guide and coordinate their postsecondary systems, offering lessons for California. In this report we provide recommendations on strategies and guidelines that could be included in any state leadership structure to ensure near-term and long-term success, and include a proposal for California to establish a coordinating body to articulate a public agenda for higher education.
