Our Goals

 

 

TOPIC: Education and Training

 

 

2020 TARGET:  In support of GradNation’s goal to increase the U.S. high school graduation rate to 90% by the class of 2020, 1 1 Graduation rate as measured by GradNation, a campaign of America’s Promise Alliance: https://gradnation.americaspromise.org/ AT&T will invest in education and training programs that use technology to address education challenges, help students get through high school and beyond, and provide the skills needed to get and keep good jobs.

 

 

PROGRESS: Committed more than $600 million 
Since 2008, we’ve committed more than $600 million to programs that help students succeed in school and discover their career passions and potential.

 

 

TOPIC: Educational Technology Solutions

 

 

2020 TARGET: Support technology applications that solve educational challenges through the AT&T Aspire Accelerator.

 

 

PROGRESS: Launched Aspire Accelerator $1 Million Skills Building Challenge
In 2020, we launched another cohort for the Aspire Accelerator $1 Million Skills Building Challenge, which provides financial investment, access to expert services and mentorship to education startups dedicated to skills development. Companies participating in our 6 previous cohorts are currently reaching more than 45 million students and have attracted more than $50 million in external funding after graduating from the program. .

 

 

TOPIC: Advanced Degrees

 

 

2025 TARGET: AT&T will promote STEM training through ongoing education programs.

 

 

PROGRESS: Investing in credential and degree programs
Inspired by Lumina Foundation’s goal to increase the number of Americans with high-quality post-secondary degrees or credentials to 60% by 2025,2 AT&T has invested in credentialing, certification or specialized degree programs that help propel students in their careers. Highlights include: 

  • Support for Udacity Nanodegree programs that provide online educational pathways to industry-relevant skills.
  • Contributions to Per Scholas to support software engineering and cybersecurity instructions, certification and career coaching. 
  • Collaboration with the University of Oklahoma, Notre Dame, North Carolina A&T State University, the University of Texas at El Paso, Hampton University and Champlain College to create opportunities for degrees or certifications in specialized fields.

In 2021, we evolved our strategy to focus on helping bridge the digital divide and announced a 3-year, $2 billion commitment to help bring affordability, educational resources and economic opportunity to the millions of Americans who don’t have broadband connectivity today.

With this revised focus, we will no longer be tracking progress toward this Advanced Degrees target.
