Strengthening Quality in the Pursuit of Equity
In 2018, Lumina Foundation appointed and convened a Quality Credentials Task Force comprising 22 leaders in education, policy, and workforce development. The task force had two charges. First, it was to explore new ways to assure the quality of a college education and other forms of learning beyond high school. Second, it was asked to develop a broad, conceptual model of credential quality that could lead to the greater equity and quality learning that our society needs and students deserve. The group met three times over the course of one year to develop this report and the new conceptual model of credentialing quality at its core.
