The Obama administration will convene a second gathering of higher education leaders this December, officials announced Wednesday.
The summit will be focused on finding ways to “improve persistence and increase college completion, especially for first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students,” according to a White House blog post.
The announcement comes as White House advisers and Education Secretary Arne Duncan on Tuesday hosted several dozen community college leaders to discuss remedial education best practices. The administration also won 14 new commitments by community colleges to expand college readiness for underprepared students.
The summit will be December 4.
