News-in-Brief: California Jobs Summit applications due Friday

ASUCD and the Office of the Chancellor will be hosting the California Jobs Summit on March 6 at the Mondavi Center.

The event will bring together students, business leaders and government leaders to discuss the current economic crisis of the state of California and the role of higher education in finding answers to this problem.

“It directly impacts us, it gives us a voice to say we’re not here to be guided, we’re here to be part of the solution,” said ASUCD President Adam Thongsavat.

The event will include speakers such as Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi, Thongsavat, President and CEO of the Sacramento Area Commerce and Trade Organization Barbara Hayes, and potentially Gov. Jerry Brown.

The event will also include panel discussions and break-out sessions. Discussions will center on finding solutions to current problems in California through the cooperation of business, government and education.

“All of us have to be advocates. Each one of us has to advocate for those that come after us,” Thongsavat said.

Two-hundred students will be chosen to take part in the event, and students can apply at asucd.ucdavis.edu. The last day to apply is Friday.
