WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Incoming first lady, Dr. Jill Biden, opened the College Promise Careers Institute, commencing a 3-day summit featuring cross sector leaders from across the country. The event highlights the role of the College Promise (free college) movement in addressing challenges faced by today's workers, students, and communities.

"I couldn't be more proud of what we have accomplished in just 5 years…and we're not done," said Dr. Biden about College Promise's work. "Joe and I will stand with you in those efforts because we know just how critical this work is."
