A Blueprint for Collective Action on Postsecondary Access and Success in NYC

The #DegreesNYC Blueprint for Collective Action on Postsecondary Access and Success in New York City is now available including an Executive Summary and full-report. Building off of a multi-year collaborative process, #DegreesNYC created this blueprint to outline the challenges related to postsecondary access and completion in New York City that they heard from practitioners, students, and the broader community, and opportunities for cross-sector, system-wide change. The blueprint is organized into four categories - affordability, institutional policies, data and accountability, and support and accessibility for all - and includes recommendations on how to move New York City towards equity in postsecondary readiness, persistence, and success.
