Reports to: Director of Operations, National
Start date: November 2021
Location: Chicago, IL
Salary Range: $50,000-$57,000 is the hiring salary range (i.e. the range a candidate could be offered to start) for this role.
Despite decades of work and millions of dollars invested, the degree divide continues to be one of our nation’s most complex and critical injustices, with deep roots in systems of oppression and racism. Only 22% of students from low-income communities earn a college degree, compared to 67% of their peers from high-income areas.
