Community Partnership for Attainment Cohort #3
Webinar 1: Highlights and Key Information
Haley Glover, Strategy Director, Lumina Foundation
Jeanna Keller Berdel, Senior Strategy Officer,
Lumina Foundation
Goal 2025:
To increase the proportion of Americans with
high-quality degrees and credentials to 60
percent by the year 2025.
What do we mean by…
Partnership Health
The community is working collaboratively to achieve common
goals, using agreed-upon accountability tools and measures, and
utilizing data to make decisions about program direction and
design
Equity
Communities explicitly identify and develop action plans to
address chronic attainment gaps between racial/ethnic groups
Attainment
Communities build support for and action plans around targeted
populations and issues with the principle:
Access + Success = Attainment
Why Equity Matters
Fourteen states
represent 46 percent
of the total U.S.
population. Those
states have a
population age five
and under that is
majority non-white.
By 2025, half of the nation’s workers, or more than 50 million,
will be of Latino descent.
Lumina’s Equity Imperative
Postsecondary Degree Attainment
Lumina recognizes that, to make effective change in higher
education, equity and excellence must be at the center of all its
efforts to reach Goal 2025.
