Academic, financial and often life challenges impede Cristo Rey graduates’ path to a bachelor’s degree. Data indicates our graduates are at the greatest risk of withdrawing from college after their freshman and sophomore years. As the Cristo Rey Network growth plan forecasts more than 20,000 Cristo Rey alumni by 2020, we are expanding our efforts to achieve our college completion goal of 70% for the Class of 2020 - comparable to the expected graduation rate for children born in high-income families.
Join Cristo Rey school leaders, University Partners, researchers, and peer collaborators for a convening showcasing evidence-based research, programs, and practices that have enhanced college success for Cristo Rey students and alumni.
2015 Summit Presenters
In keeping with the organization's mission to help Cristo Rey graduates on their transition to and through college, the Cristo Rey Network launched the University Partner Initiative in 2009 to formalize strategic relationships with colleges and universities committed to expanding its capacity and furthering its mission to “transform urban America, one student at a time” in new, mutually beneficial ways. The initiative seeks to identify, inform, and promote new institutional supports and programs that ensure college success for Cristo Rey and other low-income students across the country. We are deeply grateful to our 24 National and 22 Supporting Partners who help us realize our mission.
