Supporting What Works
AT&T Aspire has been a force for change in corporate philanthropy, and we’re proud of the program’s accomplishments.
The national graduation rate has now hit an all-time high of 83.2% for the class of 2015. In spite of this progress, significant challenges remain. Serious graduation gaps persist between students of different races, ethnicities, income-levels and special needs. AT&T is proud to be a lead supporter of the Grad Nation Campaign and to work with many successful education organizations across the country, meeting the unique needs of students in their communities.
We are also working toward the goal of increasing the number of Americans with high-quality, post-secondary degrees to 60%.
