Prospective college students in attendance can get information on possible fields of study as biochemistry, computer networking, engineering, environmental studies, mathematics, pre-nursing, business, and other majors.

“The Education Summit is designed to engage and motivate the youth of traditionally underserved communities and their families to pursue and live the dream of obtaining a college education by providing information and resources in a festive, family-friendly environment,” said Greg Smith, CSUEB associate vice president for Planning and Enrollment Management, who chairs the event.

The Education Summit will bring together a wide range of community resources and expertise to empower African American and Latino youth and their families. Those encouraged to attend include parents and families, high school and middle school students, school administrators, teachers, counselors and business and community leaders.

The summit will feature distinguished speakers, information sessions, and an educational resource fair. Topics to be covered in summit workshops and panels are student life experiences on campus; college admissions; and financing a college education through grants, scholarships and financial aid; STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers; and community support programs.

The college resource fair will feature representatives of other Northern California CSU campuses, community colleges and community outreach groups.
