Organization:Civil Rights Project at UCLA
Short Description:California community colleges are, by design, the only entry point to four-year institutions for the majority of students in the state. Yet, many of these institutions perpetuate racial and class segregation, thus disrupting the California Master Plan for Higher Education’s promise of access, equity, and excellence in higher education.
Annotation:California community colleges are, by design, the only entry point to four-year institutions for the majority of students in the state.

This report is an exploratory and descriptive examination of the pipelines to and from Southern California’s 51 community colleges.
