Equity Can’t Wait | Launch Event

Save the Date

The odds are stacked against many in our city who aspire to a post-secondary education. But the Seattle Colleges are changing the equation. We enroll the majority of grads of color from local high schools, as well as the majority of our city's first-generation college students. But we know there's much more we can do to help our students thrive and reach their goals.

Our plans are bold. They are doable. And the time is now. After so many jolting reminders of inequality and exclusion in our country and our community, it's clear: Equity Can’t Wait.

Read the case statement for our forthcoming campaign.

Please join us on March 25 for our campaign launch event.
