Support the Pathways to College Act: Urge your Senators to Co-sponsor

Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) has introduced the Pathways to College Act (S 3326), a bill designed to increase the number of low-income and first generation students enrolling in and succeeding in college.

The bill draws on research and recommendations from NACAC and our coalition partners, and would provide grant funds to high need school districts to improve school counseling services and increase students’ access to postsecondary planning and information.

Use NACAC’s Legislative Action Center to contact your Senators and urge them to join Senator Durbin in co-sponsoring S 3326. If Senator Durbin is your Senator, please edit the message to thank him for his sponsorship of this critical legislation!
