A Promising Connection: Increasing College Access and Success through Civic Engagement

This white paper provides compelling evidence that college students who participate in civic engagement and service-learning activities as part of the curriculum, earn higher grade point averages and have a better chance of staying in college and earning degrees. Moreover, K-12 students who are reached through college student civic engagement in their communities gain increased access to college and graduate in higher numbers, especially first-generation college attendees, students of color, and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
