Our Vision & Values
College is postsecondary education.
We use the term college to refer to the attainment of education beyond high school, including postsecondary certificates and academic degrees.
College is a necessity.
Postsecondary attainment dramatically increases an individual’s economic independence in a knowledge-based economy.
College is for everyone.
We work toward changing the systems that perpetuate inequities in postsecondary attainment.
College is a public good.
Postsecondary attainment is critical to a just and equitable society, strong economy, thriving democracy, and healthy communities.
