3 Student Success Lessons That Power EAB’s “Moon Shot for Equity”

EAB recently launched a national initiative, dubbed “Moon Shot for Equity,” to erase equity gaps in college completion for underserved student populations. One of the first schools to sign on to the project was Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC).

MATC President Dr. Vicki Martin joins EAB Vice President of Partnerships, Tom Sugar, to talk about why the project is so important to the Greater Milwaukee area in particular, and about why it’s time for American higher education as a whole to stop admiring the problem and act to solve it.

Mr. Sugar shares the three most important lessons all institutions can take away from the successful model employed by Georgia State University. Dr. Martin and Mr. Sugar also talk about the institutional changes that have to be made and about why the higher education model, built for a customer that lived 100 years ago, must evolve to fit today’s students.
