Community members, non-profit and business leaders, educators, elected officials—let’s come together to discuss real things we can do together to increase access to higher education in our region.

Let’s ask ourselves:

  • What things make access to college difficult to achieve?
  • ​What things—big and small—can we do to overcome them?
