Increasing Education Attainment for African Americans in Greater Louisville
Our challenge is to support the Greater Louisville Education
Commitment goal of significantly increasing for African Americans the
number of college degrees by 15,000. 15K is an initiative to actively engage
and mobilize the Louisville African American community to join the 55,000
Degrees challenge, Louisville’s Education Commitment and targeted plan to
raise education attainment levels by 2020.
15K aims to create an education movement within the African American
community that advances a college-going and degree completion culture in support
of a common agenda; to increase education attainment, prosperity, lifelong learning and an improved quality of life. Become a part of the movement to create a college-going and degree completion culture in our neighborhoods, churches, schools and organizations.
Everyone can make a difference and help ensure that 15,000
of 55,000 new degree holders will be African American.
Count Me In! provides ways for all to play a role in reaching the 55K community goal.
