Florida College Access Network
Florida College Access Network (FCAN) is at the heart of a movement to ensure all Floridians have the opportunity to achieve an education beyond high school and prosper in our dynamic economy.
By partnering with leaders, educators and communities throughout Florida—especially through community alliances called local college access networks (LCANs)—we strive to achieve Goal 2025: for 60% of working-age Floridians to hold a high-quality postsecondary degree or credential by the year 2025.
Why 60%? Because by 2025, at least 60% of Florida jobs will require some form of postsecondary credential—such as a technical certificate, 2-year or 4-year degree—to meet the rapidly changing needs of Florida’s workforce. Yet today, only 47% of working-age Floridians hold such a credential. For Florida families to prosper, most Floridians will need an education beyond high school to achieve a rewarding career.
We believe that with all of us working together, Florida will achieve Goal 2025. By transforming our systems, policies and practices to break down barriers to student success—especially for low-income students, adult learners, and others who don’t fit the “traditional” college student mold—we can build a vibrant future for Florida students and our state.
