UNITED FOR COLLEGE+Career SUCCESS
WHO WE ARE

United for College + Career Success (UFCS) builds on the ideology that a collaborative community should be accountable for the success of their students beyond high school. As a direct result of UFCS’ efforts, bold actions have led to the development of proven and replicable support programs and a large-scale learner tracking system. UFCS uses research, technology, and real-time data as drivers of its mission to empower underserved learners to obtain a meaningful credential and/or career with upward mobility.

0

%
Completion
As of 2021, 49% of the 2012 cohort graduated college (6 year completion).

The Road to a Compelling Future

UFCS’ approach to post-secondary success is highly systemic. We recognize that closing the gap between college enrollment and college completion begins with a PK-16 pipeline framework.

 

To better empower learners to make informed decisions and navigate the interrelated maze that is school, work, and life, a robust ecosystem of support must be designed and implemented to streamline a post-secondary pathway to a meaningful career.
