Attend the 2018 NCAN National Conference in Pittsburgh, PA – the City of Bridges – to network with and learn from more than 1,000 of your colleagues in the higher education, nonprofit, K-12, policy, and philanthropic communities. This year’s sessions will offer opportunities for professional development and best-practice sharing to help you increase the postsecondary enrollment and success of first-generation, low-income and minority students.

Confirmed plenary speakers and events include:

  • Dr. Mildred Garcia, President and Chief Executive Officer at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities
  • Dr. A. Wayne Johnson, Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer at Federal Student Aid
  • Plenary panel addressing the transformation of Pittsburgh’s economy from steel and mining to “eds & meds” and tech, all fueled by postsecondary education

The event will also offer pre-conference sessions on Sunday, Sept. 23 – be on the lookout for forthcoming information on these training opportunities!
