Northern Arizona College Resource Center working with ConnectEDU to help Arizonans attend college

(Arizona) November 2, 2011 - The Northern Arizona College Resource Center (NACRC) has partnered with ConnectEDU, the web-based leader in empowering students to manage their education, launch their careers, and secure a more stable financial future. Through presentations and workshops, as well as through advising appointments that are tailored to students’ individual needs, the NACRC helps students and adults attend and succeed in college and track their progress.

The NACRC and ConnectEDU relationship began through an introduction by National College Access Network (NCAN). “NCAN’s partnership with ConnectEDU reinforces our commitment to providing the most comprehensive and reliable services for our members to build capacity for making data-driven decisions and to increase the number of students who have access to and success in postsecondary education,” said Kim Cook, Executive Director of the National College Access Network.

In addition to NACRC, ConnectEDU works with other NCAN partners including Partnership for the Future in Virginia, Simmons Memorial Foundation in North Carolina, Associated College of Illinois, San Francisco Education Fund, and the SEED Foundation.
