The Edgerley Center for Civic Leadership at the Boston Foundation

75 Arlington Street, 3rd floor Boston, MA


Please join us for the release of a new report from the UMass Donahue Institute about Boston's college access and success landscape. The report includes an overview of the full range of resources, programs, services and opportunities available to support students' college access, persistence and success. It also identifies both gaps in, and duplication of, services and highlights areas for additional focus, research and investment to improve the current landscape. Following a presentation of the report's findings, a panel of civic leaders will engage in conversation about ongoing and  planned activities to address the report's recommendations.
