Join the Network

Community-based organizations (CBOs) offer critically important services to aspiring low-income college students, such as college readiness workshops, financial aid counseling, and assistance with transfers and re-enrollment. While these CBOs share the same goals as CUNY—helping their students persist and graduate from college—few have been able to create productive partnerships with CUNY colleges. In the past limited financial and human resources have been used inefficiently, services were duplicated, information was unevenly disseminated, and students suffer from lack of coordinated support. The Network for College Success recognizes that closing the opportunity gap and improving college completion rates in NYC requires a collaborative approach that integrates trusted community supports with academic guidance.
