Join the Social Enterprise Initiative on February 18 for a Social Impact Leadership Series event – Unlocking College Persistence: A Data-Driven Model that Works with Jeff Nelson, ’14.

Jeff Nelson, cofounder and chief executive officer of OneGoal, will discuss the organization’s mission to transform college completion rates and the significance of external evaluation and impact measurement to OneGoal’s work.

Hear the results of a landmark external evaluation of OneGoal by Tim Kautz of the University of Chicago’s Center for Economics of Human Development, directed by Nobel laureate James Heckman, and Wladimir Zanoni of Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago.

OneGoal is a three-year college persistence program that identifies, trains, and supports teachers to lead underperforming high school students to reach their full potential and graduate from college.

In a nation where nine percent of students from low-income communities graduate from college, 87 percent of OneGoal's high school graduates have enrolled in college. Of those who enroll, 83 percent are persisting in college or have graduated with a college degree.
