Postsecondary Success for Justice-Involved Individuals

The recent introduction of the REAL Act suggests a renewed interest in the postsecondary success of all members of society. As a part of our Postsecondary Success for Student Parents and Father Factor initiatives, Ascend at the Aspen Institute is committed to reframing the narrative of deserving families and connecting them with opportunities for family prosperity.

Join us and colleagues from College and Community Fellowship, Vera Institute of Justice, and New York City Housing Authority as we explore the impact of access to postsecondary education on justice-involved individuals and their families. 


  • Vivian D. Nixon, Executive Director, College & Community Fellowship
