Lumina Foundation launches initiative to support non-degree credentials at community colleges

The Lumina Foundation is launching a new initiative to help community colleges address the needs of adult students of color earning high-quality, non-degree credentials.

The Racial Equity for Adult Credentials in Higher Education (REACH) Collaborative, is an $8 million initiative that will create better pathways to careers. The foundation selected colleges in California, Colorado, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia.

The collaborative will ensure that academic, financial and wraparound supports are available to students for their entire enrollment. And that the resources used are specific to the needs of adult students of color.
