The Hope Center is embarking on a new project to advance understanding and evidence for effective and equitable distribution of emergency aid. This new effort, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will engage at least 100 colleges and universities, assisting them in codifying processes so they can more equitably, and more efficiently administer emergency aid and ensure student success.
All institutions participating in the project will receive a detailed look at their students’ experiences with basic needs insecurity and emergency aid, and learn from how institutions around the country do this important work. Critically, we will examine which practices are most closely associated with higher rates of utilization of emergency aid and signs of academic success.
Join Sara Goldrick-Rab and Eddy Conroy to learn about the project and sign up.
