Special to the Journal

“UNCF applauds President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for convening this summit, focused on increasing college opportunities for low-income students and narrowing the wealth divide through expanded educational access.

“UNCF has long recognized that access to education is the key to economic success. For 70 years UNCF has relied on its army of colleges and 350 scholarship programs to help get students to and through college, and to realize the impact of a college education.

“This summit was not just about talk, but a real call to action. UNCF, along with its 37 member institutions, will continue the tradition of partnering with the White House to create communities of action and build better futures for all students.”
