Year 5: busy first month!
The U.S. Department of Education’s Fact Sheet “A College Degree: Surest Pathway to Expanded Opportunity, Success for American Students” released a few weeks ago affirms the work we do together. “Helping more students graduate with high-quality degrees can change lives and strengthen the economic security of our country… in addition to giving families a clear path to the middle class.” However, only 1 in 10 students from low-income families graduate by 25. At LIT, we first empower access and then persistence and future leadership to mobilize the next-generation of leaders in this work. Check out our September newsletter: http://eepurl.com/cgdHZf.
