KQED Leads Community Discussion at Mills College

Oakland, CA—March 7, 2019

Will first-generation students be able to enter and achieve a college diploma? These and many other issues facing students desiring a higher education degree in California are critical topics for a two-part series hosted by the KQED Community Action Panel.
