Postsecondary Readiness for All
The College Readiness Consortium at the University of Minnesota works in partnership with PreK-12 educators and others to increase the number and diversity of Minnesota students who graduate from high school with the knowledge, skills and habits for success in higher education. The Consortium works to reach that goal through four ongoing initiatives:
- Engaging the University
- Minnesota Principals Academy
- Ramp-Up to Readiness™
- State and Regional Policies and Practices
We hope you will share your insights with us over the Web and in person as we work together to make college readiness a reality for every Minnesota student in the years ahead.
This booklet, College-Ready Minnesota, describes only a sample of the many ways that the University of Minnesota is working to increase the number and diversity of Minnesota students who graduate from high school with the knowledge, skills and habits for postsecondary success.
