Despite having access to an unprecedented amount of information, many students lack the support systems needed to make informed, educated decisions regarding their future. If you are looking to increase the effectiveness of existing access programs, or for those in the preliminary planning stages, this session will provide concrete strategies to address the overarching goal of moving students through the educational pipeline from early awareness to readiness. Presenters will share a collection of initiatives designed to raise aspirations and broaden college access efforts. Attendees will explore case studies and walk away with concrete ideas they can implement throughout their community.
