Event description

Description

Representatives from Alaska agencies, schools, businesses and institutions will meet in Anchorage March 6 and 7 for the "Alaska Can – Looking Ahead!” conference. The focus and goal of our fifth annual conference is to unite cross-sector professionals and students in increasing the number of Alaskans enrolling and succeeding in postsecondary education.

Alaska is one of a handful of states for which their 35- to 64-year population have higher rates of degree completion than do 18- to 34-year olds. Meanwhile, the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development projects that roughly 65% of Alaska’s fastest-growing, high-wage jobs will require some form of post-high school credential by the year 2020. Focused action to improve postsecondary access and completion is critical.

Participant takeaways will include practical skills to overcome common obstacles, new and strengthened partnerships, lessons from stories of success, and identification of opportunities for program alignment.
