Join Us on Nov. 20 in Sacramento for an Exclusive Screening of Unlikely

Three Frame Media

California Competes is pleased to co-host with the California Community Colleges the Sacramento premier of Unlikely, a groundbreaking documentary on America’s college completion crisis.

Profiling five college students across the nation, this documentary examines the structural barriers that often keep first-generation and low-income college students from successfully earning a postsecondary degree. The film is produced by Jaye and Adam Fenderson of Three Frame Media, and it brings to light the need for stronger support to help college students in California and beyond navigate the education-to-employment pipeline.

After the screening, please join California Competes Executive Director Dr. Lande Ajose, Community Colleges Chancellor Eloy Oakley, and the filmmakers for a discussion on viable solutions in the context of California policy. This event and discussion come at a critical time in California higher education policy. 

A recent California Competes report shows that 4 million adults in the state aged 25-64 started college, but did not complete a degree. Just over half of California’s college students complete their associate’s degree in three years or bachelor’s degree in six years, and this rate is lower still for Black, Latino, Native American, and Pacific Islander populations, and for men compared to women.

We hope you can join us for this special event. Tickets are free but registration is required, so please RSVP here.
