GlobalMindED is an educational and research non-profit organization committed to creating a capable, diverse talent pipeline for first-generation-to-college, at-risk and low-income students and job seekers. By incorporating research and implementing action based on our results, we aim to improve access and equity in K-12 and higher education through improved graduation rates and sustainable careers. Our mission supports the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and its focus on college and career readiness.
GlobalMindED focuses especially on first-generation-to-college and low-income learners to address and reduce the significant obstacles they face; one-third of all college students in the nation fall into this category. We provide professional development workshops and career opportunities to benefit first-generation students, those who work with them and those who hire them.
GlobalMindED convenes uncommon collaborators in education, business, STEM, government, and the nonprofit sector to address one of our nation’s most pressing issues: increasing access and opportunity for first-generation students. Our primary goal is to bring first-generation students together with educators and professionals who are dedicated to helping them succeed in academia and the workplace. We also support all faculty, administrators and staff along the education and career pipeline to provide the most opportunities possible through strong networks, resources and relationships that lead to student success..
