Lumina’s Talent, Innovation, and Equity (TIE) initiative awards multi-year grants and technical assistance to states to promote awareness of racial attainment gaps in postsecondary education and work towards the reduction and elimination of those gaps (Lumina, 2017). Starting in 2017, the TIE initiative has provided four states – Tennessee, Colorado, Oregon, and Virginia – with funding and resources to help increase attainment for students of color, mainly Black, Hispanic/ Latinx, and American Indian students. Through the TIE initiative, the Lumina Foundation hopes to spur change nationwide by placing racial equity at the forefront of postsecondary attainment goals.
