Our Priorities

We direct our efforts at five priorities that will improve the benefits students gain from postsecondary education.

We are dedicated to ensuring that postsecondary education and training equitably delivers social and economic mobility for students, particularly students of color, first-generation college students, working adults, and people who struggle to afford education after high school.

Providing access to postsecondary education isn’t enough. Neither is ensuring students complete a degree or other postsecondary credential. Strada works to better connect students with success beyond completion so that they can achieve their goals and lead choice-filled lives.
