Publication Date

President Stephen C. Ainlay joined college leaders from across the country who met recently at the College for Every Student (CFES) Center in Essex, N.Y., to develop strategies to help 1 million low-income students attain college degrees by 2025.

Union is a partner with CFES, a nonprofit organization committed “to raising the academic aspirations and performance of underserved youth so that they can prepare for, gain access to, and succeed in college.”

CFES and Trinity College Dublin are launching a global campaign, called “One Million More,” involving colleges, businesses and corporations.

Ainlay is a member of a task force of college leaders involved in the effort. He delivered opening remarks at the gathering in Essex June 24-25. Edward Summers, chief of staff, is also a member of the task force.
