Increasing the number of low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented high school students who enter and complete higher education.
Virginia College Advising Corps addresses structural inequities in the education system that have systematically advantaged some populations over others. We have a responsibility to our students, our communities, and our Commonwealth to understand how these historical injustices continue to impact current day opportunities and outcomes. We are fierce advocates for low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students, and believe that access to higher education is paramount to racial and economic equity. We are working towards a day when race, socioeconomic status or zip code are no longer factors in educational outcomes.
