Who Should Attend
This free event is designed for college access and readiness professionals in Kentucky (i.e. GEAR UP, TRIO, Early College, Americorps, college coaches, CART, KY AHEC, etc), the school leaders of the schools and districts with which they work, and postsecondary education faculty.
The goal of the event is to facilitate a conversation that begins to clarify the role of school personnel and college access/readiness professionals in building a college-going culture in schools. One of our key objectives is to identify clear pathways for collaboration between school personnel and college access and readiness professionals.
Postsecondary education faculty are invited to share and discuss ideas about how we can better bridge the gap between high school and college, and how to best prepare future school administrators and counselors to effectively meet the challenges of schools, especially under-achieving schools.
