2018 NCAN Success Gallery: Building Bridges Across the Pipeline

Do you participate in a strong partnership among K-12, community-based organizations, and postsecondary institutions in your state or region? Have you created an alumni support network as part of your program’s strategy? Are you sharing ideas and strategies across the K-12/higher ed pipeline? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the National College Access Network (NCAN) invites you to showcase your efforts at the Building Bridges across the Pipeline Success Gallery and reception at the 2018 NCAN National Conference. This year’s conference, Building Bridges to Success, will take place Sept. 24-26 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown in Pittsburgh, PA. 

Every year at the NCAN conference we host a Success Gallery that gives members the opportunity to highlight their work. This year's gallery, made possible by generous support from ACT Center for Equity in Learning, will focus on strategies to build partnerships among institutions of postsecondary education, community-based organizations, and/or K-12 schools and districts. It will also provide the opportunity for conference attendees to network with and learn from each other. We strongly encourage NCAN-member organizations to submit an application to share their strategies and tools for building and maintaining these relationships, as well as the outcomes and benefits they have reaped for students and the community. 

Please apply now to share your most effective work with other access and success colleagues!
