During the spring semester (2019) Design: Public Practice worked with Higher Edge on co-creating community engagement strategies. Higher Edge is dedicated to guiding low-income and first-generation students through enrollment, retention, and graduation from college by providing the support and resources needed for success. Our work was collaborative, designed and implemented in conjunction with Higher Edge and students in the College Access Program and Success Program.

Student participants included: Nadia Bednarczuk, Annie Breakstone, Jacob Brill-Weill, Jillian Edwards, Emily Ehler, Quinlan Low, Cal Nadeau, Olga Nikolaeva, Ezra Norris, Lera Shynkarova, Erin Smith, Natasha Strugatz, Megan Webber. This project was funded by the Holleran Center for Community Action at Connecticut College.
