Despite the effectiveness of emergency aid in helping vulnerable students to graduate, the approach is not well understood or effectively administered. Seventy percent of higher education institutions in the US offer emergency aid; however, few have an established program or methodology to ensure that the aid has maximum impact and reach.
To help address these challenges, Reos Partners is pleased to launch the Emergency Aid Lab (EAL). The EAL seeks to achieve a “new normal” of effective emergency financial aid across a critical mass of higher education institutions in the US. A key objective is to create a credible and user-friendly playbook of best practices for effectively implementing emergency financial aid on campuses. The playbook will be co-created, tested, and continually evolved by an engaged community of practitioners and partners.
