Invitation to Participate - Global Access to Postsecondary Education (GAPS) Initiative

The GAPS mission is to build a global, engaged & collaborative access community that will champion post-secondary education for all and transform student opportunity.

Our vision is to connect the access community around the world so that the cause of access and student success for those underrepresented at the post-secondary level will gain its voice, momentum and capacity for impact, positively transforming student opportunity at the global and local level. 

I would like to invite you to participate in our work.
