Remove Barriers to Equitable Outcomes
Inequity continues to pervade higher education, and 63% of leaders report still needing more insights to make informed decisions to close equity gaps.
Colleges and universities need an equity framework to help them understand students’ complex lives, accurately identify the challenges students face, and proactively connect students to the right resources to help them succeed.
Civitas Learning partners advance equity by using actionable data insights to align their student success systems to the diverse challenges and circumstances students face.
We’re proud to showcase the work our partners are doing to realize higher education’s promise to improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities.
