In an effort to support community-based collaborations among key sectors—education, business, policy, and nonprofit and community organizations—IHEP planned a series of primer fact sheets that will help communities increase their postsecondary attainment. This primer explores the importance of raising the rates of persistence and completion among students who enter postsecondary programs, especially from underserved populations, by providing them with strong institutional and community supports. A tactical guidebook that provides further detail can be found here.
