White House FACT SHEET on Improving College Opportunity

The August 13, 2014 White House FACT SHEET on Improving College Opportunity is available at http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/08/13/fact-sheet-improving-college-opportunity .  It contains an announcement that "the President and First Lady will host its next Summit on College Opportunity on December 4, 2014. The goal of this conference will build on the work  from the first College Opportunity Summit last January, while launching initiatives in new areas.  This year’s summit will focus on building sustainable collaborations in communities with strong K-12 and higher education partnerships to encourage college going, and supporting colleges to work together to dramatically improve persistence and increase college completion, especially for first generation, low-income, and underrepresented students."  Several new private and public sector commitments to expand college opportunity are also announced.
