Member institutions of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) advance social mobility for students of all backgrounds—particularly those from lower-income families, first-generation college students, and/or students of color—to positively impact families, communities, and the students themselves. This series shares stories from state colleges and universities that have taken bold steps to successfully serve underrepresented students and their communities. Expert discussions give listeners an inside look at how these institutions are fostering greater accessibility and affordability, closing gaps to postsecondary education completion, connecting students to viable career opportunities, and creating a more just, equitable society.
