The Alabama College Attainment Network (AlabamaCAN) breaks down barriers to increase college readiness, access, and completion in Alabama, particularly among students of under-resourced families, first-generation college-going students, and students of color.

Alabama has come together as a state around the Success Plus initiative and its target of adding 500,000 highly-skilled workers with valuable postsecondary credentials by 2025 (established May 14, 2018). Alabama Possible, a member of National College Attainment Network, launched a statewide network in Fall 2020, Alabama College Attainment Network, focused on the transition from high school to and through postsecondary education. The founding members include Alabama Commission on Higher Education, Alabama Community College System, and Alabama State Department of Education.

As the convener of this statewide network, Alabama Possible aims to provide capacity building, technical assistance, consulting, workshops, training, conferences, advocacy, and research to educators, community-based organizations, and policymakers to drive equitable increases in postsecondary attainment.

There are best-practices and lessons learned that should shape policy and practice reform in all education and workforce training institutions in Alabama to ensure we meet the Governor’s goal of 500,000 highly skilled citizens in the workforce by 2025.
