Local College Access Network (LCAN)

Local College Access Networks are community-based college access alliances supported by a team of community and education leaders representing K-12, higher education, the nonprofit sector, business, and philanthropy.  These coalitions are focused on building a college-going culture and increasing college readiness, participation, and completion rates in their community.  LCANs build and expand existing programs, services and resources aimed at lowering barriers that prevent students from pursuing post-secondary educational opportunities.  

LCANs organize community leaders around a singular vision:  Increase the community's post-secondary educational attainment level to 60 percent by the year 2025.
