The purpose of the Post-secondary Access CAN is to improve the rates of post-secondary enrollment for members of the Shelby County community who have historically confronted structural barriers to understanding and completing the steps necessary to enroll in post-secondary institutions.
The most immediate pathway to increasing enrollment is ensuring seniors complete the college application process and enroll. For the purposes of this project we will focus on the application and enrollment processes, specifically the opportunities available to gain access to the information and support necessary to complete these processes successfully. The network will also attend to the needs of adults who have yet to access post-secondary education.
