Living Our Mission

Transforming education and our communities through service

Everything we do at EAB reflects our distinctive mission and values, including our corporate social responsibility commitment. Expand the sections below to explore what this has meant for education and our communities across the last several years.

Making Education Smarter

We take a three-pronged approach to improving educational outcomes.

First, we provide area schools with hands-on support, such as tutoring, and offer pro bono support in operational effectiveness.

Second, we drive community-wide impact by providing support to nonprofits or school systems delivering quantifiable results.

Finally, we develop national partnerships with organizations that have large data sets and are focused on enabling low-income students to achieve higher education success, then use our predictive analytics and proven intervention strategies to partner with these groups in improving access to and success in higher education.
