Why Join NCAN?
advance your mission
As a member of the NCAN, you're part of a growing network of nearly 400 college access and success professionals and organizations. In the last decade, NCAN's membership has grown more than 500%, elevating our voice and building the field of college access and success into a national movement. Your membership helps strengthen this effort and our voice. Together, we can help more students navigate the path to and through college.
You're seeking ways to serve more students more effectively, but you often don't have local resources to turn to for benchmarking, professional development, or just to share ideas. As an NCAN member, you will build relationships with peer programs around the country, gain access to nationally vetted research and reports, and participate in countless free and discounted professional development opportunities. We offer monthly webinars, regional learning events, and an annual conference.
Save your organization time and money. Gain access to our members-only Success Digest (a weekly email roundup of the top college access and success news you need to know), discounts on events, data from the National Student Clearinghouse, and professional development webinars to ensure your organization's staff has the resources they need to do their jobs better and more efficiently.
College success takes a village, and at NCAN you can connect with some 500 NCAN members spanning a broad range of the education, nonprofit, government, and civic sectors: national, regional, and local nonprofit organizations that help more underrepresented students enter and succeed in postsecondary education; colleges and universities; foundations and corporations; state education agencies; K-12 school districts; education associations; consultants; and researchers.
