NCAN has over 250 members in 45 states.

“Our partnership with NCAN is an exciting opportunity for us, given how closely aligned our visions are,” said Craig Powell, CEO, ConnectEDU. “We applaud them for their work in ensuring that more students have access to higher education, and we look forward to working with them to help meet that vision.”
