Deborah Bial of the Posse Foundation will speak at this year’s baccalaureate. An expert in education, college access, and leadership development, Bial is president and founder of the Posse Foundation, a nonprofit that sends teams (Posses) of students from diverse backgrounds to selective colleges and universities, including Colby.

Since founding the Posse Foundation in 1989, Bial has grown it into one of the most comprehensive college access and scholarship programs in the United States. Today it supports programs in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, and Washington, D.C. Since 1989 more than 6,000 Posse Scholars have attended 52 top-tier colleges and universities and have won $805 million in scholarships from those partner institutions. Ninety percent of Posse Scholars persist and graduate—significantly above the national average.

In 2007 Bial received a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. She is a distinguished visiting fellow at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.
