As Lumina Foundation works to increase the nation’s education attainment rates, we embrace a dual commitment – to racial equity and to quality credentials. In short, we seek to ensure that our systems of education beyond high school produce fair and just outcomes for people of color. At the same time, we work to ensure that degrees and other education credentials reflect the learning necessary for workplace success and informed citizenship.

This document articulates our commitment to racial equity in detail. A parallel document articulates our commitment to quality credentials.
