On September 16-18, 2019, the National College Access Network (NCAN) will hold its national conference, Racing Toward Postsecondary Success, at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown. The event will attract 1,200 individuals from around the country who help more underrepresented students enter and complete postsecondary education, including:

  • National, state, regional, and local nonprofits
  • Colleges and universities
  • K-12 schools
  • Local, state, and federal government agencies
  • Foundation and corporate funders

Topics will include postsecondary access and completion strategies for low-income students and students of color, financial aid and college affordability, cross-sector collaboration to increase postsecondary attainment rates and employment, and relevant local, state, and federal policy and advocacy. You can also expect robust discussion of hot issues such as social and emotional competencies, achieving equity for historically underserved students, career readiness, partnerships with school districts, strategic giving for community foundations, and the value of the full range of postsecondary credentials, up to and including the bachelor’s degree.
