The University of Lynchburg has joined Coalition for College, a diverse group of more than 150 public and private colleges and universities across the U.S. working to improve college access for first-generation and lower-income students. Lynchburg is one of 18 new members for the 2020-21 academic year.
“The power of the Coalition is in our ability to work across member institutions to provide helpful tools and advice to students about making smart college choices,” Coalition CEO Stacey Kostell said in a press release.
“That work is more important than ever at a time when the equity gap is growing and students need help staying on track during the pandemic. We’re thrilled to count the University of Lynchburg as partners in this work and look forward to reaching more students together in the coming year.”
Coalition member schools are united in their mission to support students and provide responsible financial aid. The goal: to boost students’ success in college and beyond.
The Coalition, founded in 2015 by a group of college leaders, aims to improve the college application process, particularly for students from historically underrepresented groups. MyCoalition, a set of free, online college-planning tools, helps students learn about, prepare for, and apply to college.
