This project will focus on pathways development to support adult learners of color in attaining credentials of value at Historically Black Community Colleges and Predominantly Black Community Colleges.

This project is centered around engaging institutional leadership in appropriately identifying and responding to the needs of their adult students of color. Combining this student-centric approach that emphasizes institutional accountability with the establishment of baseline data for individual and collective student outcomes across the cohort will provide an opportunity to measure institutional progress toward eliminating different educational outcomes by race and age. Many of the institutions we will partner with for this investment need direct technical assistance and infrastructure support to fully actualize their student success plans. The development of a cohort of content experts from within the institutions will serve to build internal capacity for increased collaboration and resource sharing. The establishment of a network for collaboration and partnership will contribute to building a community with the necessary resources to empower students and support their needs and success. 

Deadline to submit application: September 17, 2021
