Collective Impact

Collective impact is the commitment of a group of important actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem. (Kania and Kramer, 2011). 

 

Blue Water College Access Network uses the collective impact framework as a model to increase the college-going rates of graduates in St. Clair County.
