An Introductory College Class
College has historically been a ticket to economic mobility.
But college is too expensive, quality is variable and opaque, and colleges are not held accountable for cost, completion, or employment results.
And low-income, first generation and BIPOC learners are most affected by these failings.
Because higher education is a closed sector designed to protect existing institutions and their billions of public dollars, not designed for the learner first.

We are working to create pathways for such instiutions by showcasing the problems of and possibilities for our higher education system.
