DEDICATED TO IMPROVING THE LIVES OF BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED PEOPLE

Envision Has Acquired the College Success Program

by Jaime Rodriguez, RDPFS Intern

The College Success Program (CSP), a national virtual college preparedness and success program for students who are blind and visually impaired, has been acquired by Envision. CSP, formerly a Learning Ally program, will become part of Envision’s Workforce Innovation Center, providing a resource to students “both inside the classroom and out” and offering assistance to students in “managing their support networks.” Envision offers educational and career resources to members aimed at improving the college graduation statistics of people who are blind and visually impaired, a statistic that currently stands at less than 15 percent for bachelor’s degrees, according to the National Federation of the Blind (NFB). The College Success Program includes access to educational resources, webinars, a podcast, weekly meetups, a network of peers and mentors, and Learning Ally’s audiobook library. The programs and services provided by Envision’s College Success Program are provided free of charge. To become a member, click here to register.
