P2CP One-Pager – The P2CP one-pager is available here as a pdf that is current as of June 2016. Numbers should be checked before this item is printed and distributed; if updates are needed, the editable inDesign file is available in the EI folder of the shared drive.

College Initiative One-Pager – This CI one-pager is appropriate for general audiences interested in an overview of the work of CI. The numbers in the chart are current as of October 2016 and are phrased so that they don’t have to be updated each time we want to use the document; should you wish to edit it, there is an editable Microsoft Publisher version of this file in the EI folder of the shared drive. (If you do choose to edit it make sure to save the file as a PDF, rather than a .pub, before printing.) The CI one-pager works both in color and in black-and-white and prints double-sided in portrait orientation on standard 8.5″ x 11″ paper.
