COVID-19 is having devastating impacts on #RealCollege students. Please see the resources on Hope’s COVID19 page and donate to the Student Relief Fund.

Students are humans first.

The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice is redefining what it means to be a student-ready college, with a national movement centering #RealCollege students’ basic needs.  Food, affordable housing, transportation, childcare, and mental health are central conditions for learning. Without those needs met, far too many students leave college in debt and without degrees.

We are conducting action research and fighting for the resources and supports to help #RealCollege students succeed.
