ACT’s Center for Equity in Learning focuses on closing gaps in equity, opportunity and achievement for underserved populations and working learners. Through purposeful investments, employee engagement, and thoughtful advocacy efforts, the Center supports innovative partnerships, actionable research, initiatives, campaigns, and programs to further ACT’s mission of helping people achieve education and workplace success.
ACT has a broad and deep history of social responsibility. Focusing on social impact is inherently connected to its mission of helping people achieve education and workplace success.
In ways large and small, behind the scenes and out in the field, ACT’s Center for Equity in Learning is committed to improving equitable access for all learners to achieve success in life.
The ACT Center for Equity in Learning was established in 2016. It is based in ACT’s Iowa City headquarters.
In 2019, Tina Gridiron, a leader in higher education and philanthropy, joined ACT’s Center for Equity in Learning as vice president of philanthropic partnerships.
