Philadelphia College Access Forum

Posted by on July 21, 2008

The PA Department of Education will be embarking on a state-wide college access agenda.  You are invited to be part of setting that agenda.  College access practitioners and other youth-service provider from across PA will converge on the beautiful campus of Rosemont College on August 11th and 12th to help set the agenda, discuss, share and network.  The Forum (formerly the conference) will be hosted by the Philadelphia College Prep Roundtable.

You are cordially invited to attend and take part in this interactive program.  There are 4 ways to take an active part:

1)     Be an attendee with a voice in helping to set the college access agenda.

2)     Be an exhibitor if you represent a college/university or service entity (that has a cost for services – we are asking a $100 donation for a 2-day set up).

3)     Be a presenter sharing your expertise in any area of the K-16 continuum.  (Session slots are limited.  The Forum planning committee reserves the right to the selection of sessions.)

4)     Be any combination of the 3 above.
