Rural College Access & Success Summit

#RuralSummit19

The whitepaper from the 2018 Rural College Access and Success Summit will be released here this summer.

The Rural College Access and Success Summit brought together teachers, principals, superintendents, legislators, non-profit leaders and many others to share ideas and strategies for ensuring that rural youth have the opportunity to successfully transition from high school to college and to career. During the Summit, college access and success programs that serve rural America shared best practices and highlighted the unique challenges of increasing opportunity in rural America. The ideas generated at the Summit will be compiled into action items and will be shared with participants and policy makers in the weeks following the event.
