Breakthroughs in Higher Education

NGLC is proud to again offer two annual programs that are breaking down barriers to college completion and student success. The Breakthrough Models Academy and the Breakthrough Models Incubator—for individuals and for institutional teams, respectively—will usher in new cohorts for a yearlong series of virtual and onsite programming, workshops, webinars and more. Alumni become part of a vital global network that is rethinking and redesigning higher education programs and student services.
