Dear College Visions Community,
I am extremely proud to announce that Tina Meetran will be the next Executive Director of College Visions. Tina is an accomplished alum of College Visions, and her leadership presents an exciting new phase for our organization.
The CV Board is committed to building organizational leadership that reflects the students and communities we serve and Tina is an extremely talented embodiment of that goal. Tina was born and raised in Providence. She holds a B.A. and M.A. from Clark University. She has previously served as Board Chair of Providence youth organization PrYSM and created Rhode Island’s first comprehensive guide to advising undocumented students. For 16 years, CV has supported young people to set big goals, apply to college, and earn degrees. Tina’s leadership demonstrates the power of the College Visions model.
Tina will lead a fiscally strong organization with thriving programs. Despite the many challenges COVID has presented to our students and our organization, CV has responded nimbly to move programs online and provide additional financial and emotional support to students. We know that the coming year will be a tough one for low-income, first-generation Rhode Island students, but we are confident that with continued support from CV and our community students can thrive.
If you have any questions about what is next for CV, please do not hesitate to contact me.
College Visions Board Chair
