2020-2021 Ascend PSP National Advisors

The 2020 – 2021 National Advisors make up a group of 23 leaders moving the needle on transformational supports and partnerships with student parents. They come from higher education institutions and nonprofit organizations and will provide guidance on strategies and recommendations to be developed over the next two years. Additionally, the National Advisors will help design the Aspen Policy Acceleration Partnership Grants, a challenge that will target states, cities, and counties with a demonstrated commitment to improving postsecondary success for parents. Ascend will work with these governmental entities to implement strategies proven to increase access to early childhood learning, housing, health care, and supports that increase highquality postsecondary credentials among parents
