Clarkson University officials will be in the Placer County region this week to introduce area professionals to new graduate programs options and to advance an emerging technology education partnership with Sierra College undergraduates.
"We see Clarkson’s partnership with Sierra College in offering high caliber programs that are in high demand right here in our region as another success for Roseville’s Higher Education Task Force efforts,” said Roseville City Councilmember Dr. Tim Herman, chair of the task force.
The City of Roseville along with Sierra College, California State University Sacramento, University of the Pacific, Brandman University, and William Jessup University signed a memorandum of understanding November 6, 2013 to work toward establishing a University Center for higher education in Roseville.
On April 4, 2012, the Roseville City Council accepted the findings and recommendations of the City’s multi-stakeholder Higher Education Task Force. In doing so, it took a significant step toward increasing higher education options for Roseville and South Placer County residents.
