Just The Facts

CDI Fact Book

CDI’s 2019 Fact Book highlights the work we do in our effort to close the education, achievement, and opportunity gap for low-income, first-generation-to-college students.

Illustrating the efficacy of CDI’s high-touch, results-driven approach that includes mentoring, tutoring, counseling, and family support over the course of more than six years, the Fact Book underscores why our work matters to our Scholars and the families we have served since 2005.

Additionally, you will find information about CDI’s School Support Program that extends our work to high school college advising offices through tailored consulting focused on helping school counselors and staff improve college advising and supporting students to find their best-fit college.

With the help of donations, sponsorships, and underwriting, CDI can expand the reach of our successful, proven program and help even more low-income, first-to-college students fulfill their educational aspirations and achieve what is possible.
