Student Access and Completion: A Regional Strategic Enrollment Partnership

"Albert" told his story to special visitor Dr. Jill Biden in order to bring notice to a very unique tuition assistance program provided to Valencia College's homeless students. Not only was Albert homeless, his background was indicative of failure and through education he turned his life around and helped others with similar backgrounds. His voice resonates with his message, which was that going to Valencia College and "DirectConnecting to UCF" changed not only his life, but many others, and now his goal is to give back by assisting others to take this path to success. Albert made the transition from "street smart" to "reality smart."
