College Summit has published three White Papers—one with the Aspen Institute, one with the Center for American Progress, and one with the Data Quality Campaign—all of which advocate for policy reforms designed to ensure that all of America’s youth make it to and through college.
Our 2008 White Paper, High Schools as Launch Pads, focused on the importance of building a college-going culture in order to improve student achievement and attainment.
