Board of Equalization helps employees expand educational opportunities

Submitted By Anita Gore
Betty T. Yee, Chairwoman of the Board of Equalization, and California State University (CSU) representatives announced on January 10, 2011, the BOE is collaborating with CSU's Continuing Education Program to provide opportunities for adult learning to enable employees to study for a college degree while working. The BOE hosted a one-hour presentation in Sacramento by CSU that presented information on various degrees that can be earned through the College of Continuing Education Program.
The BOE offers such opportunities to its employees to gain a greater understanding of tax and fee programs, improve professional skills and continue employee education for professional development to better serve California's tax and fee payers. CSU will offer in-person and online classes to encourage BOE employees to expand their knowledge of a particular subject or advance toward an academic degree.
Employees, who enroll in this program as students, are responsible for the costs associated with the courses; however, reimbursement may be allowed pursuant to bargaining agreements.
