The goal of this overall effort—called Core to College—is to encourage the K-12 and postsecondary sectors to share ownership of college-readiness standards and promote their use in decisions about students’ readiness for college-level work. This initiative, a collaboration with the Lumina and Gates foundations and the Carnegie Corporation, promotes use of the Common Core standards to reduce students’ need for remedial classes in college and increase their success in attaining credentials. This supplemental grant would help Core to College institutions of higher education reform their academic catch-up courses for low-skilled students by aligning with the Common Core.

for support of is a bipartisan citizens’ initiative to address hate-fueled violence in America, starting by listening across all states, territories, and tribal lands for insights and ideas about the challenge and path forward. They seek input from Americans of every region, race, faith, ethnicity, and ideology – spanning those who have suffered the effects of this violence; researchers and experts who have studied the problem; social innovators and advocates leading the way with bold and tested ideas; philanthropists committed to allocating resources to the implementation and scaling of those ideas; and those who have left groups affiliated with hatred and violence and become a part of the solution. They will turn their findings into a countrywide response that greatly expands the scale of effective community-based innovations — and helps to mobilize and sustain a united front that transcends differences.
