College completion rates are up, reaching 58% in 2018 – but significant gaps remain, particularly among first-generation students, low-income students and students of color. White students graduate from four-year public institutions at much higher rates (~72%) than their black (~47%) and Hispanic (~57%) peers. Our panelists will lead a lively discussion of how they have successfully helped create equity at scale at their schools, sharing actionable tips and advice with attendees.
