Institutional Partners

Recognizing removing financial barriers is just one part of the equation for college success. Richmond Promise is a unified effort between the City of Richmond, West Contra Costa Unified School District, Contra Costa College, University of California, Cal State University Systems, CBO’s, and the Richmond community to address primary barriers to college access and success. These institutional partners work together to exchange ideas, align and leverage resources, provide infrastructure, and set policies to create seamless pathways to support the post-secondary success of Richmond young people, particularly low-income, first-generation students.
