The Moon Shot for Equity is a public-private partnership with education firm EAB dedicated to making sure that more students complete college degrees, especially those most often left behind – low income, first generation and students of color. Building on a long-standing commitment to serve a diverse population in an urban setting, WCU believes the Moon Shot for Equity will help improve the quality of life for all in southeastern Pennsylvania.

WCU will work to complete a series of goals in taking a comprehensive approach to remove obstacles and create solutions aimed at closing equity gaps in higher education. 

Goals are organized into several categories. Many of these goals fit seamlessly into existing WCU initiatives. We believe the Moon Shot will provide the boost that helps create meaningful, lasting change.

It is up to us to work together to develop ways to eliminate one of the greatest barriers of our times — systemic equity gaps.

- President Fiorentino
