Earning a college degree or credential, now more than ever, is essential to achieving a stable, middle-class life and upward mobility. But just 1 in 10 students from low-income families will earn a bachelor’s degree by age 25, compared with more than 7 in 10 people from higher income families.
With so many low-income students attending postsecondary institutions in urban areas, the Education Program at The Kresge Foundation has focused on a solution – improving the urban higher education ecosystem.
This ecosystem includes colleges and universities, nonprofit organizations, employers, K-12 school districts and government agencies, as well as systems such as housing, transportation, food, financial aid, and childcare.
