This is the second in an occasional series called "Promising Practices: What Works in the Midwest." The series was launched to showcase innovative initiatives and effective ways to address common challenges and unique opportunities in higher education. Promising practices enable educators and policymakers to compare and benchmark themselves to peer institutions and states and in the process learn more about their own needs, values, and unique context. This report focuses on three exemplary programs: the Illinois Promise at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; the state-run All Iowa Opportunity Scholarship; and Campus and Community: Together for Good, a partnership between Finlandia University and Hancock Public Schools in Hancock, Michigan. The sections include brief descriptions of the programs and discussion about why they stand out as promising practices. The report concludes with a summary of the lessons learned from these programs. (Contains 1 table and 22 notes.)
