The 15,000 Degrees Initiative (15K) is a collaborative of organizations and individuals whose mission is to create an education movement within Louisville’s African-American community.  The goal is to increase the number of additional African-American degree holders by 15,000 by 2020. 15K works in and with Louisville’s African-American community and other education and economic development stakeholders to drive a movement that will ignite a community that advances college-going and degree completion in pursuit of increased education attainment, life-long learning and an improved quality of life.  The efforts of the 15K Initiative support Louisville’s Greater Education Commitment, 55,000 Degrees.
