Community Partnership for Attainment - Cohort #3 Webinar 1: Highlights and Key Information Haley Glover, Strategy Director, Lumina Foundation Jeanna Keller Berdel, Senior Strategy Officer, Lumina Foundation
Goal 2025: To increase the proportion of Americans with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60 percent by the year 2025.
What do we mean by… Partnership Health The community is working collaboratively to achieve common goals, using agreed-upon accountability tools and measures, and utilizing data to make decisions about program direction and design Equity Communities explicitly identify and develop action plans to address chronic attainment gaps between racial/ethnic groups Attainment Communities build support for and action plans around targeted populations and issues with the principle: Access + Success = Attainment
Why Equity Matters Fourteen states represent 46 percent of the total U.S. population. Those states have a population age five and under that is majority non-white. By 2025, half of the nation’s workers, or more than 50 million, will be of Latino descent.
Lumina’s Equity Imperative Postsecondary Degree Attainment Lumina recognizes that, to make effective change in higher education, equity and excellence must be at the center of all its efforts to reach Goal 2025.
