Washington, DC – As public universities aim to develop new strategies to improve student success, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU) today announced grants to eight public universities supporting the piloting and scaling of university-community partnerships focused on advancing student success. The grants, known as Collaborative Opportunity Grants, are supported with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and will support the institutions’ efforts to leverage community partnerships as a means of improving students’ access to, success in, and completion of college.
