We invest in innovative, student-centered practices, programs, and research that support college students as they pursue Associate’s or Bachelor’s degrees and prepare for meaningful careers. We know that academic success, wellness, and community connections are the deep roots of a positive college experience, and we have seen the impact that critical services like advising, mental health support, career development, and student and family engagement have on student success. This holistic approach to college success drives our work with community partners that support students across the country. We believe higher education and community partners have a unique opportunity to center students, build momentum, and strengthen infrastructure as students contribute their many talents and skills and overcome barriers to achieve their dreams. .
The Crimsonbridge Foundation’s College Success Program works with nonprofits, high school districts, community colleges and universities, and research organizations to put our strategic priorities into action.
- Improve college completion for students, especially first-generation and students underrepresented in higher education.
- Identify and elevate research that provides innovative solutions to barriers students face.
- Increase momentum towards a college degree.
