About us

The Campaign for College Opportunity is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to ensuring that the next
generation of college-age students in California has the chance to go to college as promised by the state's 1960
Master Plan for Higher Education. The Campaign was founded by the California Business Roundtable, the
Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) and the Community College League of
California in 2003. Michele Siqueiros serves as the Executive Director.

The goals of the Campaign are to substantially increase the number of students attending two and four year
colleges in the state and to significantly impact the rate that students succeed and achieve their post-secondary
education objectives. Through building a strong committed coalition of key education, industry, labor, and policy
leaders as well as leading public awareness efforts which highlight the crisis facing higher education in California,
the Campaign works to create an environment of change and lead the state toward effective policy solutions.

The Campaign would not be possible without financial support from a number of institutions including the William
and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation, the Lumina Education Foundation, the Ford
Foundation, the Walter S. Johnson Foundation, the McConnell Foundation, the California Wellness Foundation,
the College Access Foundation of California, the Koret Foundation, the Stuart Foundation, the Rosalinde and
Arthur Gilbert Foundation, Citigroup, Kaiser Permanente and many other individuals and organizations.
