Equity. Access. Excellence.

Discover the Dana Center’s Impact

How can we ensure that all students—particularly those who are traditionally underserved—have equitable access to an excellent education and pathways to prepare for postsecondary and career success?

At the Charles A. Dana Center, this is the question that shapes our work and inspires our teams every single day. In 2018, we saw another year of progress among our K–12 and Higher Education programs—working alongside educators, administrators, policymakers, and advocacy partners to dismantle the barriers that often stand in the way of students’ success.

Through the 2018 Dana Center by the Numbers, you’ll discover the impact and reach of the work we do each day—from local districts and higher education institutions to military bases around the world.
