Transformational Planning Grant

In partnership with APLU, Urban Serving Universities (USU) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the TPG project will support a cohort of seven public urban research universities as they spend a year planning and designing new business models and innovative approaches to increase access, improve success rates and find greater cost efficiencies.

These institutions demonstrated evidence of being early adopters, measured by the degree to which they have begun to convene stakeholders and implement system-level change. The seven sites will be supported by USU and APLU networks, which will capture and promote promising practices and broker support for the sites if they need additional resources or expertise.

APLU intends to use its national network to work to scale the most promising findings and practices of the seven grantees to help its more than 200 public university members across the country better meet the needs of their evolving student populations.
