Strengthening the Pipeline Through Community Partnerships: Engaging Urban Schools & Communities

Posted by National College Access Network on September 17, 2018

Join the University of Michigan to learn about their newest initiative, Engaging Urban Schools and Communities Initiative, which is aimed at increasing access and success for low-income students in urban communities. This initiative recognizes that academic, financial, and socio-emotional support is critical for the retention and persistence of low-income students, especially at four-year public institutions. In this inaugural pilot program, UM seeks to build strategic partnerships with key stakeholders locally and nationally within the college access community, including community based organizations, independent school districts, charter schools, scholarship foundations, and other entities that serve as college access champions. This webinar will also highlight the ways low-income students are already supported at UM through transition-to-college programming, one-on-one mentoring, and summer bridge programs.
