Our mission

Our mission is to close the gap in college graduation rates by providing every college student with a holistic support system. First-generation, underrepresented minority, and low-income students have lower graduation rates not because they lack the ability, but because they face systemic barriers in accessing the support of a college-going network. We start by ensuring students’ basic needs are met. We empower students with a quick and easy way to compare and access critical resources so they can focus on what matters—graduating. We envision a world where colleges emphasize programs & services over rankings, experiences of real students over diversity statistics, and student outcomes over prestige.
