Higher education advances us as a society. It promotes a greater appreciation and understanding of the diversity of our communities, opens doors to new opportunities, increases lifetime earnings, and enables economic mobility. Join leaders from Thurgood Marshall College Fund, United Negro College Fund, Texas Southern University, and Sallie Mae to discuss the barriers to higher education success, what’s happening to break these barriers, and how they are living their missions of preparing the next generation of workforce talent through leadership development.
