Federation for A Competitive Economy

What is FACE?

FACE (the Federation for A Competitive Economy) emerged from a coalition previously known  as the Education leadership Federation which was established as a regional effort to improve  the college-going rate in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Building on this work, FACE  began in 2009, under the leadership of Chancellor Timothy White with the aim of creating an intellectual climate in the Inland Empire that promotes and improves educational opportunities  for all students, significantly benefiting the economy whose prosperity depends on a well-trained workforce at a time when society’s jobs are demanding even greater education and skills.
