Lumina Foundation is an independent, private foundation that is committed to making opportunities for learning beyond high school available to all. The Foundation works with business, community, education, and government leaders to restructure education and training systems that have granted exceptional opportunities to some while leaving many Black, Hispanic, Latino, and Native American adults behind. Areas of focus include working with state and federal policymakers on the need to prepare more individuals, especially people of color, for informed citizenship and success in a global economy; increasing access to well-designed programs and pathways that address racial disparities in student outcomes; and supporting institutions that serve today’s student, including community and technical colleges, bachelor’s-granting colleges and universities, minority-serving institutions, and state higher education systems.
