About Lumina Foundation and WICHE

Lumina Foundation is committed to enrolling and graduating more students from college—especially low-income students, students of color, first-generation students, and adult learners. Our goal is to increase the percentage of Americans who hold high-quality degrees and credentials to 60 percent by 2025. Lumina pursues this goal in three ways: by identifying and supporting effective practice, through public policy advocacy, and by using our communications and convening power to build public will for change.

The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) and its 16 member states work collaboratively to expand educational access and excellence for all citizens of the West. By promoting innovation, cooperation, resource sharing, and sound public policy among states and institutions, WICHE strengthens higher education’s contributions to the region’s social, economic, and civic life. Where it is in the best interest of its member states, WICHE often works beyond the West, as it is doing with this national Network.
