Accessible Higher Education

Overview

Let’s put power in the hands of Georgians to transform their lives and the state through higher education. With smart, fiscally responsible policies Georgia can provide clear paths for our students to get to and through college. As they rise, their career opportunities and earnings will improve, powering richer contributions to our state’s economy and communities. Join GBPI in advocating for policies that improve higher education access and completion. Improving higher education outcomes is good for Georgians and good for Georgia.
