Transform Institutions: A highly structured, comprehensive approach to systemic change to improve students attainment of skills, credentials, and socioeconomic mobility. It is founded on the principle that everything can and should change. Redefine Readiness: Fundamentally shifting the conversation about what it means to put students first, encouraging colleges to focus on their readiness for students rather than students readiness for college.
