The 2017 Florida College Access and Success Summit is in the rear-view mirror, and we’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who attended and showed their support. More than 250 people from multiple sectors — including business and community leaders, K-12 counselors and educators, college access practitioners, postsecondary administrators and more — attended this year’s two-day event, which included more than 25 sessions!
By popular demand, we have gathered all available slides from presenters during the summit!
