Colleges That Change Lives, Inc. (CTCL) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and support of a student-centered college search process. We were founded as a result of a book of the same name, Colleges That Change Lives, researched and written by retired New York Times education editor Loren Pope. Mr. Pope passed away in Sept. 2008 but his mission lives on through the work of CTCL.
In following Mr. Pope’s ideals, we believe that the criteria most college bound students and their parents and counselors use, such as name and prestige, do not acknowledge the importance of understanding an individual student’s needs and how they “fit” with the mission and identity of an individual college community.
The CTCL program features admission officials from the schools profiled in the third edition of Colleges That Change Lives. Individual school counselors and independent counselors alike are invited to join all CTCL schools and their representatives at 9 a.m. for a buffet breakfast, along with a brief introduction about our organization.
Additionally, Allie Austin, Assistant Director of Admissions, will be available to talk about additional information surrounding Emory & Henry College following our introduction.
