Projects

Current projects include Urban Universities for Health, Completion and Retention Grants, and the Transformational Planning Grant (TPG) project which is phase one of a national student success initiative with seven public urban research universities. This project is supporting and promoting the planning and implementation of replicable and scalable student success pathways and community engagements aimed at changing higher education and transforming communities by collaborating to build the urban workforce and foster student achievement for more low income, first generation, and underserved students of color. This work falls under the framework of the Collaborating for Change initiative.  Research and Resources
