Assessing Our Work


We see our impact in the data we collect and on the proud faces of students and their families as they move to and through college. The programs and services we provided are evaluated and assessed through data and measurable outcomes. We take our work in schools and communities seriously and it is imperative we have the data to measure the impact of that work. Yet, it is the stories of our students (many of whom are the first in their families to go onto higher education) getting admitted to and graduating from college, as well as seeing our Adviser Fellow Alumni go on to graduate school and to pursue careers in fields that enable them to give back to their communities that reveals the true impact of our work.
