College Planning Center Receives Sudbury Foundation Grant Award

Framingham State University, in partnership with MassBay Community College, has received a generous grant from the Sudbury Foundation to fund the development of a strategic and marketing plan for the new MetroWest College Planning Center (CPC), and to evaluate the program after one year. The mission of the CPC is to provide the necessary outreach, training, and advising to connect with youth in the region, guide them on their desired educational course, and help them develop specialization for skills training at the community college level, or to acquire an associate’s degree, Mass. Transfer, or completion of a four year degree. With the support of the Sudbury Foundation, the CPC will be able to draw up an effective strategic and business plan for long-term success and sustainability of the project, create a detailed, comprehensive marketing strategy for at risk youth, under-represented minorities, and first generation college students, and produce an evaluation of the program after one year to ensure measurable impact and the ability to make adjustments if projected outcomes are not achieved.
