BridgeEdU Reveals Top Five Challenges and Opportunities for the Future of College Access

With fierce global competition and rising cost of living, college access and college completion have never been more important for earning middle-class wages, especially for the under-served population where many of them are fighting their way out of poverty.

BridgeEdU asked leaders from the recent National College Access Network (NCAN) Conference to give us their take on the top challenges and opportunities for college access. NCAN members include foundations, non- and for-profit organizations with the goal of preparing students for college, many of which are Pell Eligible, Underrepresented Minorities, and First Generation.

These organizations are on the front line, supporting students. Their experiences, therefore, provide real-time insight into industry difficulties and opportunities for advancement. We meet each challenge as a chance to grow, and invite you to read and enjoy!
