NCAN's Strategies
Building College Access Partnerships: State and Regional Networks
State and Regional Networks
An interconnected system of organizations that cooperate, coordinate, and/or collaborate to achieve increased postsecondary access and success for students, particularly those from historically underrepresented populations, low-income and potential first-generation college students.

NCAN's mission is to build, strengthen, and empower communities committed to college access and success so that all students, especially those underrepresented in postsecondary education, can achieve their educational dreams.

Backbone Organization
Common Agenda:
all participants must have a shared vision for change that includes a common understanding of the problem and a joint approach to solving it through agreed upon actions.
Shared Measurements:
all participating organizations agree on a short list of indicators to ensure that all efforts remain aligned and enabling participants to hold each other accountable and learn from each other’s successes and failures.
Mutually Reinforcing Activities:
each partner undertakes the specific set of activities at which it excels in a way that supports and is coordinated with the actions of others.
Continuous Communication:
in an effort to build up enough experience and trust among partners to recognize and appreciate the common motivation behind their different efforts.
Backbone Organizations:
A dedicated staff separate from the participating organizations who can plan, manage, and support the initiative through ongoing facilitation, technology and communications support, data collection and reporting, and handling the myriad logistical and administrative details.
