Allen County College Success Summit

Since 2010, Allen County has had a coalition participating in a network of state and local organizations interested in increasing college access and success. These county level coalitions make up the "Indiana College Success Coalition." Member organizations include local government, businesses, agencies, schools, local media, libraries, youth service organizations, service clubs, community foundations, faith-based organizations and others. All focused on the same goal: working together to improve Indiana’s college outcomes.

This year Allen County was selected by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education to host a regional “College Success Summit."
Please join us on November 7th from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM at Indiana Tech, Andorfer Commons (Room 207) for a College Success Summit with Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education, Teresa Lubbers.
