Change the Narrative

Build awareness of the importance of postsecondary education and training, and the diversity of education and career pathways.


Promote equitable policy and programming that expands access to and the completion of postsecondary education and training for students of all ages and backgrounds.


Mobilize stakeholders to achieve systems-level change by increasing communication, coordination, and sharing of knowledge and best practices.


Track progress toward Vermont’s postsecondary attainment goal, identify where equity-related gaps exist, and share state- and national- level, data, research, and trends.
