Connecting CBOs and Higher Ed

On Tuesday, June 9, 2014, PASE held its second Connecting CBOs and Higher Ed: A Forum & College Fair in co-sponsorship with Barnard College.

The focus of the two panel discussions was on resources and strategies to support persistence for first generation, low income students and/or students of color. Barnard College and Lehman College participated on the higher education panel; New Settlement Apartments and Sadie Nash Leadership Project sat on the CBO panel.

After the panel discussions, the fair portion of the event allowed CBO attendees to meet with college representatives to learn about their school, admissions requirements, and the services and resources they provide to encourage students to apply to, thrive in, and graduate from their school.

Over 150 people attended the event, including 32 colleges and universities (up from 17 last year). The college representatives thought it was valuable and a unique opportunity and many said they looked forward to coming back next year. CBO attendees also noted that they appreciated the opportunity to connect with colleges one-on-one.

The event is part of PASE's College Prep & Success initiative.
