Amarillo College Accepts 'No Excuses' in Pursuing Its Anti-Poverty Mission
Amarillo College is on a mission to help students who often get left behind on their path to higher education. In 2012, the two-year institution in Texas launched a "No Excuses Poverty Initiative" to address the life barriers keeping many low-income students from being successful: child care, health care, food, housing, transportation, and utility payments.
This "culture of caring" is working. Completion rates at Amarillo have tripled.
