How Southeastern Wisconsin is closing equity gaps

Discover EAB’s Moon Shot for Equity Initiative

A shared goal: Closing the equity gap for underrepresented students

Higher education has a well-documented equity gap problem. Countless studies show that colleges graduate low-income students, first-generation students, and students of color at lower rates than their peers from majority populations.

Studies also show that the population of incoming college students will only become more diverse. We must eliminate persistent equity gaps at our colleges and universities to ensure that all students have the same opportunities for success during and after their time at our institutions.  

At EAB, we are partnering with regional cohorts of community colleges and four-year institutions in the Moon Shot for Equity initiative to close equity gaps in their region by 2030. Watch the video to learn why leaders of our first region, Southeastern Wisconsin, chose to partner with EAB on Moon Shot. To learn more about how your institution can join the initiative and close equity gaps in your region, fill out the form here and a member of the Moon Shot for Equity team will reach out to you. 


We in higher education must take a stand and must, must collaborate, partner, and commit to not only closing equity gaps but to eliminate them and that is what we are going to do as members of the Moon Shot for Equity.
