PromiseNet 2017 Preview

Last week, the Upjohn Institute hosted a information webinar, “Learning from a Decade of College Promise Scholarships”, on data, metrics, and the status of Promise programs in the US.  I invite you to view and consider how, together, we can bring a Promise program to Akron and the affect such a program would have on our community.

Here are some links mentioned in the webinar:

Buchanan Promise
El Dorado Promise
Richmond Promise
Detroit Promise
Michigan Promise Zone Designations
Kalamazoo Promise

Registration is still open for PromiseNet 2017, November 6 and 7, in Kalamazoo, MI for those interested in attending.
