DUKE UNIVERSITY: Price Joins University Leaders At Summit On Accessibility To Higher Education

Duke University issued the following announcement on Feb. 6.

President Price joined Bloomberg Philanthropies' American Talent Initiative and nearly 100 college and university leaders today to discuss improving access to higher education

Duke President Vincent Price joined nearly 100 other college and university leaders in a summit discussion of how to expand opportunities for higher education opportunities for talented low-and moderate-income students.

Called the American Talent Initiative (ATI), the program aims to attract, enroll, and graduate an additional 50,000 lower-income students at the 296 colleges and universities that consistently graduate at least 70 percent of their students in six years.

“We are deeply committed to expanding access to a Duke education, and today’s meeting was an excellent opportunity to learn from our peers about their financial aid and student support strategies,” Price said. “This is a foundational issue for higher education, one that I hope that we can solve in collaboration with other colleges and universities from around the world.”
