The 2019 FCAN Summit is in the rear-view mirror, and we would like to extend a huge thank you to all the changemakers who attended the event and joined the conversation surrounding college access and completion for all Florida students.

More than 360 people from various sectors — including business and community leaders, policymakers, K-12 counselors and educators, college and university administrators and faculty, nonprofit professionals, philanthropic leaders, college students, and more — attended this year’s summit, which featured more than 40 sessions highlighting the latest developments in college access, postsecondary success, college affordability, career readiness and workforce development, data and measurement, and collective impact.

By popular demand, we have gathered PDF versions of all available slides from presenters at the 2019 FCAN Summit!
