Scaling Student Success: A National Proposal
Please join us as we unveil a bold new $1 billion proposal to send formula grants to states for scaling comprehensive student success initiatives, and ultimately double the number of first generation, low-income, Black, Indigenous, and Latino students who graduate from college.
Increasing postsecondary attainment offers tremendous promise for increasing social mobility, tackling poverty, and reducing racial and income inequality. Over the past decade, colleges and non-profit organizations across the country have pioneered new and more comprehensive ways to help their students succeed in completing a degree or credential. Centered around a human dimension, such as a counselor, these programs connect students with the financial, academic, and personal support they need to make it through college. Rigorous research has validated that these model programs are having a major impact, dramatically increasing college persistence and attainment and student earnings, and have the potential to address the completion crisis facing America's colleges.

This event will feature:

- A High-level Overview of the Research Base On CASS: Jim Sullivan, Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO)
- Program Perspective-what would the proposal mean for programs: Christine Brongniart, CUNY ASAP
- A Student Perspective: Students from the comprehensive support program, One Million Degrees (OMD)
