High-quality, accessible, and actionable data are essential to drive greater postsecondary attainment.

In an effort to support community-based collaborations on data use among key sectors—education, business, policy, and nonprofit and community organizations—and as part of the Community Partnership for Attainment (CPA), funded by Lumina Foundation, IHEP developed a series of primer fact sheets and tactical guidebooks.

Future job market needs will require communities to take strides to develop a qualified, diverse workforce by creating more opportunities for underserved student populations who have not been afforded access to postsecondary education and early professional experience.

This guidebook explains how some communities within the CPA network use cross-sector partnerships to develop career supports for today’s students.
