Deadline to Submit Proposals Is Oct. 17
ACE is seeking proposals by Oct. 17 from colleges and universities interested in participating in a second round of the Change and Innovation Lab (CIL), a groundbreaking project to help colleges and universities implement significant and sustainable initiatives to increase the number of first-generation and nontraditional students with a college degree.
Only four-year historically black colleges and universities, minority-serving institutions and Hispanic-serving institutions are eligible to apply. Each college or university CIL team must include an institution's president or chancellor and provost or vice president for academic affairs.
The selection criteria is designed to encourage high-access institutions to participate, including colleges and universities that enroll large numbers of Pell Grant recipients, have a history of serving or the capacity to serve post-traditional learners, and are interested in using technology and data to improve attainment rates. Up to four institutions will be selected.
The first round of the CIL has engaged presidents and other senior leaders at 10 campuses across the country in an 18-month project to implement concrete steps and identify how these practices can be applied broadly at institutions nationwide.

The project is generously supported by a grant from Lumina Foundation.
