HBCU Digital Learning Infrastructure

Since their founding, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have proven that institutions built with Black learners at the center can lead to extraordinary results of students. According to UNCF, HBCU’s represent just 3 percent of colleges and universities in the U.S. but produce 20 percent of Black graduates. And they do this in the face of long odds, having to overcome systemic injustices that leave them with far fewer resources than non-HBCUs. Their success is a model for innovative, student-centered success that deserves broader recognition.

Metro Momentum Pathways

2017 – Present

CCA recognizes that its organizational mission to dramatically improve postsecondary attainment rates and close achievement gaps intersects well with the mission of metro regions to grow their economy and create upward mobility for their citizens. To advance its mission, CCA must work with institutions that serve large numbers of low-income, place-bound students and students of color and help these institutions achieve significantly better outcomes.

Recognizing this intersection, CCA is proud to launch the new Metro Momentum Pathways Initiative in partnership with the ECMC Foundation to help three metro regions – Southern Nevada, the Metro Milwaukee (M7) Region, and Inland Empire in California – and their postsecondary institutions scale a core set of evidence-based strategies proven to close equity gaps and generate significant gains in college completion rates. Individually, these strategies are CCA’s well-known Game Changers.
