American Talent Initiative

Seeks to substantially expand access and opportunity for talented, lower-income students at the nation’s colleges and universities with the highest graduation rates. Member institutions are working to enhance their own efforts to recruit and support lower-income students, learn from each other, and contribute to research that will help other colleges and universities expand opportunity. The 30 founding members of the American Talent Initiative represent a diverse set of public and private colleges and universities with high graduation rates. The organization is studying what steps top colleges and universities can take to attract, enroll, and graduate lower-income students.
