One of the few national convenings to focus on rural America, the Rural College Access and Success Summit brings together teachers, principals, superintendents, higher education leaders, legislators, and non-profit leaders to share ideas and strategies for ensuring that rural youth have the opportunity to successfully transition from high school to college and career.
With participants from Maine to Alaska and Washington to Louisiana, the Summit represents the real diversity of rural communities and provides a unique opportunity for practitioners to learn from peers who face similar challenges.

The 2021 Summit will be held in Manchester, New Hampshire, on April 25-28.
