Effort launches to boost low-income enrollment at top colleges

The American Talent Initiative aims to add 50,000 students from modest backgrounds to campuses by 2025. A group of 30 top colleges and universities wants to enroll more low-income students, but critics question whether the focus should be elsewhere.

Is your college a good place for minority students to study? Most students say yes

What’s the climate for studying on your campus for students of all backgrounds? Perceptions matter.

We are so fortunate to have an amazing community that believes in our mission! Thank you.

We wish you all a prosperous new year! Cheers!
