Dual enrollment is a powerful tool for securing the transition from high school to college. However, despite the fact that dual enrollment has the biggest impact for students underrepresented in higher ed, those students do not have equitable access to this powerful opportunity. Recently, Community College Research Center and Aspen Institute documented what nine colleges are doing to close that equity gap in Dual Enrollment Playbook.

Join Dr. Karen A. Stout, President & CEO of Achieving the Dream, for a discussion with college leaders who have prioritized equity in their dual enrollment programs. We will also be joined by the authors of the Dual Enrollment Playbook who will discuss the leadership strategies which increase equity in dual enrollment.
