Yes We Must Coalition to convene at Paul Quinn College
Posted By: Eddie Francis on March 15, 2013

The Yes We Must Coalition will hold its fourth annual membership meeting on the campus of Paul Quinn College March 22-23, 2013. Yes We Must was formed to increase the number of degrees received by students from under-resourced communities by advocating for small, independent, non-profit institutions such as Paul Quinn. PQC is the only member institution in the State of Texas.

“We are an ardent supporter of Yes We Must and the important work it does." said Michael J. Sorrell, president of Paul Quinn and a Board member of Yes We Must. "Lost in the current debate about higher education reform are the silent cries of students who have been marginalized due to the economic standing of their families. Yes We Must provides a voice for institutions who are dedicated to these types of students and their families. Paul Quinn is proud to be that type of school and a member of such an important organization."

Yes We Must consists of 29 member institutions. The organization seeks to achieve goals that include improving graduation rates for students from under-resourced communities, contributing to the national goal to increase the number of students receiving college degrees by 2020, and developing measurements for demonstrating college success for students from under-resourced communities, among other important goals. More information can be found at www.yeswemustcoalition.org.
