Partners for Transformation

Our mission is to support social mobility by strengthening mission-focused colleges and universities that primarily serve low-income, first generation, and under-resourced students and families.

About Us

Developing Deep Partnerships with Key Institutions

By developing deep partnerships with key institutions and encouraging collaboration on shared services, we create a network effect where a single HBCU’s success yields collective benefits for many.

Ed Advancement solutions and resources will increase enrollment, graduation rates and student outcomes that will strengthen HBCUs and create greater equity and economic benefits for their students.
