Higher Education Guides

AMP SoCal’s network of Higher Education Guides are located at many of Southern California’s public and private universities and colleges. These single points of contact navigate industry representatives through the internal structure of each institution, helping businesses more easily access the resources available to them. AMP SoCal is actively developing and expanding the model to include the greater Southern California higher education system. Please contact us if you would like to collaborate with a college or university but do not see the contact information below.
