How Lumina is making a difference

Labor economists say two-thirds of U.S. residents from 25 to 64 will need college degrees, certificates, industry-recognized certifications, or other credentials of value by 2025 to meet individual, economic, and social demands. To help the millions of Americans who are not yet on track, dramatic changes in how and where learning occurs are necessary.

Only then will the nation experience improved civic engagement, economic opportunity, health and welfare, racial equity, and social mobility.

Explore how Lumina Foundation is working at local, state, and national levels to design an affordable, new learning landscape that’s easier to navigate, especially for people who are Black, Hispanic, and Native American and often encounter barriers to success in existing education systems.
