Taking Collective Action for Student Success
Strong Start to Finish is a network of higher education system leaders, policy and research partners, education innovators, foundations and institution leaders committed to developmental education reform. We’re taking collective action to ensure students get the support they need to pass credit-bearing courses in English and math in their first year of college.
We support the scaling and implementation of proven developmental education reforms, oversee efforts across state higher education systems, develop and share innovative research, and facilitate quality technical assistance to members of the network and beyond. By connecting partners from across our network, we learn from each other’s accomplishments and challenges to accelerate reform efforts.
Education Commission of the States is the host of the Strong Start to Finish network.
