Postsecondary education and credentials are key to economic mobility for individuals and economic competitiveness for our nation. Yet too many low-income adults and disadvantaged youth are locked out of the opportunity to earn credentials and are falling further and further behind. To combat this national challenge, CLASP has launched a new project, the Center for Postsecondary and Economic Success (C-PES).
Join CLASP as they kick-off C-PES with a policy discussion featuring thought leaders from the Ford, Bill & Melinda Gates and Joyce foundations. Each of these foundations has made improving postsecondary access and success a top priority. During this webinar, they'll discuss their specific policy priorities for helping lower-income adults and disadvantaged youth attain postsecondary credentials and achieve economic mobility.
This webinar will also provide a brief overview about CLASP's Center for Postsecondary and Economic Success's core policy areas of focus and activities.
