Some of the country’s biggest colleges and universities have pledged to help more students earn degrees, which experts see as a path to the middle-class lifestyle. The American Association of Colleges and Universities and American Public Land-grant Universities, which advocates for policies, has rolled out a program to help more higher-education institutions implement changes to improve student success. “Collaborating for Change [initiative] isn’t just about outlining steps public urban universities can take to improve student success, it’s about helping them actually implement those changes so we can begin to see the progress and improvement that is needed,” said Peter McPherson, president of the APLU.
