• A deeper look at Common App equity initiatives

    Thursday, Mar 21, 2024

    This past September, Common App launched our Next Chapter and set a moonshot goal to close our equity gap in students pursuing postsecondary opportunities. To close the gap, Common App needs 650,000 additional applicants from low- and middle-income communities by 2030.

    Counselors and advisors are invited to join this webinar to hear how Common App is partnering with member colleges and organizations to help expand access and meet our moonshot. We’ll discuss current equity-focused pilots, projects, and initiatives that are changing the admissions landscape. Team members from across the organization will share progress on direct admissions, the student context inventory, scholarships and FAFSA resources, equity research, and new ways we’re engaging with first-generation and low-income students and those who support them. There will be time for Q&A, so come with your questions.

    This webinar will be recorded. A copy of the webinar recording and slides will be shared with all registrants.
