The growing college degree divide

We believe a student’s future should be determined solely by their aspirations, motivation and effort, not by their family’s income

Yet nationwide, there’s a widening gap between the aspirations of students from economically disadvantaged households who want to earn a college degree, and the systemic, unfair barriers they face in achieving it.

A college degree is one of the surest paths to economic mobility

When students from under-represented communities earn a bachelor’s degree, especially those who are the first in their family to attend college, they are 24% more likely to be employed and 3.5 times less likely to live in poverty when compared with peers who don’t attend college.*
