How Elite Colleges Are Tackling Education Equity

Mar 10, 2022

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

Join the President of Howard University, a renown Wharton professor and New York Times journalist to explore what happens when top colleges team up with historically underserved school districts to advance college aspiration, access, and success. Hear how an education justice nonprofit is building a consortium of top colleges and universities that are addressing systemic inequities in the gap from high school to college and beyond through a new College-in-High School model that aims to change the college trajectory for talented students too often overlooked by the current system.
