Title:Making opportunity affordable: Reinvesting in college access and success
Source:http://www.makingopportunityaffordable.org:80/
Date:2007
Organization:Jobs for the Future
Short Description:The multi-year Making Opportunity Affordable: Reinvesting in College Access and Success initiative is focused on assisting states and institutions in addressing three fundamental problems: stagnant educational attainment, escalating spending, and eroding quality.
Annotation:This initiative is designed to: spark a national dialogue about the interaction of access, quality, and cost that will facilitate consensus around new ways of thinking and new strategies for improvement; mobilize and support leaders eager to take action; unite courageous innovators to share ideas and strategies; develop useful tools to help colleges and policymakers better identify and monitor institutional spending and reforms; produce research to explore key issues in the field, including the causes of skyrocketing costs, and the most potent changes in policy and practice; fund model programs in states and institutions through multi-year Opportunity Grants to up to five states and their higher education systems; and identify, document, and disseminate what is learned to foster implementation in additional states and their higher education systems and institutions.
