Campaign '68

Many see similarities between the 2016 presidential election campaign and one almost half a century earlier. The 1968 presidential campaign was one of the most dramatic and significant contests for the White House in the 20th century. It was a close, bitterly-fought campaign in a raucous, bloody year. Ultimately, the Democratic Party lost its decades-long grip on national power, making way for the rise of Republican conservatism that profoundly reshaped American public policy for the next 40 years.

The Arkansas Career Pathways Initiative supports students at the two-year colleges in the state with a Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) grant award that provides child care, transportation, tuition, textbooks, and other required course materials. The state has spent over $50 million on the project, with many successes in low-income college students. Over 18,000 students have enrolled, and have earned over 20,000 certificates and degrees. College staff provides case management at the beginning of the programs as advisers and tutors, and at the end, as career services support. The goal of the program is self-sufficiency.
