Partnerships for Educational Equity


Partnerships for Educational Equity exists to build and sustain synergistic collaborations among targeted programs, while serving as an example of institutional commitment and promoting an ongoing focus on and progress toward equitable outcomes in educational attainment, career placements, and economic opportunities. Partnerships for Educational Equity aims to leverage existing partnerships, as well as establish new partnerships, targeted to help students along K-16 pathways to:

  • develop aspirations for college
  • experience and participate in a college-going culture
  • gain access to college
  • benefit from available opportunities and resources in college
  • complete college


To inspire people from diverse backgrounds, identities and careers to engage and invest so that students underserved because of their identity characteristics have access to college and encounter appropriate support and resources to be successful


To promote success for all students while working intentionally toward equity-focused, inclusive excellence to persuade students to achieve a college degree and prepare for lifelong learning, civic engagement, economic contribution, personal well-being, and purposeful living
