Carla Rivera covers higher education for the Los Angeles Times. She was a member of the staff that won a Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the 1992 Los Angeles riots. She's covered county government, the homeless on Skid Row, Malibu wildfires and been stung by rubber bullets during the 2000 Democratic Convention.
