Promises to Keep: Findings on College Promise Financial Sustainability

The College Promise Campaign, with generous support from the ECMC Foundation, Strada Education Network, and ETS, administered its first Financial Sustainability survey to 225 College Promise programs across the nation to identify and promote best practices for ensuring continued support for students. The survey is the first national snapshot of College Promise programs underway in communities and states. 

This webinar, hosted by MDRC’s College Promise Success Initiative, shared the initial survey findings about student characteristics, program financing, and administrative program features. The panelists were:

  • Martha Kanter, Executive Director, College Promise Campaign

  • Michael P. Meotti, Executive Director, Washington Student Achievement Council

  • Krissy DeAlejandro, Executive Director, tnAchieves

  • Robyn Hiestand, Director of Research and Policy, College Promise Campaign

  • Evan Weissman, Senior Associate, MDRC

This webinar was co-hosted on July 31, 2019, by MDRC and the College Promise Campaign.
