Collaborating for Change


Transformational Planning Grant


In partnership with APLU, the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Transformational Planning Grant (TPG) project was the first phase of the Collaborating for Change initiative.

A cohort of seven public urban research universities spent a year planning and designing new business models and innovative approaches to increase access, improve success rates and find greater cost efficiencies.
