The Higher Education Compact of Greater Cleveland promotes a data-driven, outcomes approach to promoting student success. Cleveland's civic leaders, educators, and college and university presidents developed a plan to increase the number of youth who attend and graduate from college. The Compact has adopted the College Success Dashboard, an ongoing annual snapshot of student and community successes and challenges.

The Higher Education Compact of Greater Cleveland Annual Report to the Community tells the story of progress and challenge for college attainment. The College Success Dashboard represented the second year of results on the state of college readiness, access and persistence for Cleveland Metropolitan School District students. The results are presented in the Report to the Community and in an online dashboard.
College Now Greater Cleveland chose to work with Aespire to create a story worth telling through complex data and a continuing narrative of student success.
