Michele Siqueiros


The Campaign for College Opportunity

Since its founding in 2004, Michele Siqueiros has been the driving force behind the Campaign for College Opportunity, a California based nonprofit policy advocacy and research organization committed to ensuring more students can go to college and succeed. The daughter of a seamstress who then became the first in her family to go to college, Michele understands the transformative power of education and has dedicated her life to opening the doors of college opportunity.Michele has championed a higher education agenda in California where both college access and college completion are valued equally and where it is no longer acceptable to stand by and allow generations of students to go without a college education. She makes it uncomfortable for colleges and universities to accept poor outcomes for students. She demands the attention of the state’s legislature and Governor calling on them to adequately fund California’s public colleges and universities while using those dollars to leverage better outcomes.
