California Lt. Gov. John Garamendi will be at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) on Tuesday, Sept. 23, to discuss the state’s education system with educators, students, business and labor leaders and community members.
Part of his “Listening Tour of California’s State Universities,” the event will be held from 10 a.m. to noon in The Pointe of the Walter Pyramid, which is located on the Atherton Street side of the campus.
Garamendi is expected to focus on a couple of different areas, including preparing for the future, meeting the community’s needs and workforce development. In particular, the lieutenant governor is interested in discussing the professional development of the future workforce in nursing, education and other university programs. He is also interested in learning how CSULB collaborates with other educational and industry partners to enrich students’ education from the primary levels through the collegiate ranks and into the workforce..
“It is vital that California find innovative answers to meet worker shortages in critical fields such as nursing and teaching,” Garamendi said. “I believe that with a renewed commitment and thoughtful planning, our world-class higher education institutions will be able to better prepare our students for future careers and help our state maintain its leadership in the global economy.”
