Event description

Description

Please join Uptake for the launch of Student Union, our data-driven college success application that provides first-generation college applicants with a portfolio of schools that give them the best chance of admission and graduation.

The event will feature a session with special guest, former Secretary of Education and Managing Director of Emerson Collective, Arne Duncan.

A predictive analytics software company, Uptake was uniquely positioned to build a college matching tool with advanced machine learning and data science capabilities. Student Union was created by Uptake.org, Uptake’s philanthropic and civic innovation arm, to help first-generation college students find schools that give them the best chances of success. It considers more than just test scores, and it accounts for each student’s unique background and lifestyle needs.

The agenda for the event is as follows:

8:30-9am: Breakfast and meet and greet with Chicago education reform leaders
9:00-10:00am: Fireside chat with Arne Duncan and presentations from OneGoal and Uptake
10-11am: Students present the Student Union tool to our launch guests

We’re looking forward to showing you how, with tools like Student Union, we can help all students find the right path for success in higher education.

Hope to see you there!
