Santa Cruz County boasts a strong educational community, with several colleges and universities, plus schools and education programs for preschoolers, elementary age children, middle and high school students, and adults.
The Santa Cruz Area Chamber of Commerce has historically been active in the support of educational progress and expansion. From the beginning, the Chamber claimed the role of being a fundamental backing for educational growth, supporting the development of Cabrillo College in the 1950s and UCSC in the 1960s.
The Chamber understands that education is critical to the health and prosperity of the Santa Cruz economy. Not only does the continued productivity and competitiveness of our businesses and organizations depend on the ability of our workforce to acquire and apply new skills and knowledge, but also, the long-term vitality of the Santa Cruz economy requires the creation of new knowledge, new technology and new means of application. Establishing and maintaining high quality educational opportunities from all available resources a cornerstone element contributing to the quality of life in the community.
