Our U.S. Program President, Allan Golston, talks with students at Mission College in Santa Clara, California, to learn firsthand the challenges and opportunities today’s college students face in pursuing a higher education.

Today’s students come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring an equally diverse set of needs. 40 percent are age 25 or older—returning to advance their career or to re-train for a new opportunity. Many students hold full-time jobs while enrolled in classes, one-quarter are parents, and many are the first in their family to attend college. In 2014, 42 percent of college students identified as students of color, compared to just 20 percent in 1990.
