Carson — California State University Dominguez Hills has been selected to host a U.S. Department of Education open forum on President Barack Obama’s College Affordability Initiative, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 6, in the Loker Student Union Ballroom.
This will be an opportunity for the public to provide feedback on Obama’s higher education plan, which was announced in August.
Under Secretary of Education Martha Kanter and other Department of Education officials will facilitate the forum.
