Officials from California State University, Sacramento and the Los Rios Community College District will sign a formal agreement to jointly develop new initiatives during a meeting at 11 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 2.

The event will be in the boardroom of Sacramento Hall on the Sacramento State campus. Comments will be made by Los Rios Chancellor Brice Harris and Sacramento State President Alexander Gonzalez, followed by a general discussion.
