IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Monica Arellano (right) is just one of thousands of parents who benefit from the California State University’s partnership with the Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) and are inspired to get more involved in their children’s education. The PIQE program, which helps parents of Latino and other underserved student populations prepare their children to achieve a university education, is a key component of the CSU’s goal to raise the percentage of students from underserved communities eligible to enter the CSU from 19% to 35% by 2016.
