Fresno State President Joseph I. Castro will join President Obama, the First Lady and Vice President Biden at the White House College Opportunity Summit on Thursday, Dec, 4.

The Summit will bring together colleges and universities, business leaders, nonprofits and others that are committed to supporting more college opportunities for students across the country.

This year’s summit will focus on building sustainable collaborations in communities with strong K-12 and higher education partnerships to encourage college going, as well as supporting colleges to work together to dramatically improve persistence and increase college completion, especially for first generation, low-income and underrepresented students.
