NCHER College Access Forum

Welcome to the NCHER College Access Forum Page. Below is information about tools and resources for college access practitioners and information about the College Access Initiative, NCHER's External Advisory Committee and the college access listserv.

NCHER College Access Listserv
We have launched a listserv for NCHER members and colleagues to join to share information about college access research, programs, new initiatives and best practices. It will be a forum for organizations to share ideas and ask questions. If you are interested in joining this listserv, please email us at
