College Success

We aim to increase the number of students from traditionally underserved backgrounds, including low-income and first-generation, who are prepared for, admitted to, and graduate from an institution of higher education. To achieve this outcome, ECMC Foundation will fund the development of techniques and tools that are adopted and used by professionals in the field to improve the college-going rate of underserved students. ECMC Foundation will also support initiatives to improve six-year college graduation rates at four-year colleges and universities, and three-year transfer/completion rates at community colleges and schools for students from these underserved populations.
