2012 Assets Learning Conference

Partnerships to Promote College Affordability, Enrollment and Success

September 20, 2012  2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Room: Washington 2

The College Board’s Advocacy and Policy Center’s mission is to ensure that students from all backgrounds have the opportunity to succeed in college and beyond. The Center, working with partners committed to similar goals, has developed innovative approaches to inform students and parents about the benefits of postsecondary education and how to pay for it. Learn about three creative projects that have successfully translated data and facts into accessible and understandable messages; and delivered that information using student-centered, parent friendly tools and materials. Panelists will review the results of these projects implemented during the past year that will reach hundreds of thousands of low- and moderate-income students and their families.
