Council Long Range Planning Goals - Iowa College Access Network - ICAN

Council Long Range Planning Goals

At each meeting council members spend time discussing potential needs and new developments that could enhance the counseling profession and student experience with regards to college and career readiness and access. These discussions result in a list of long-range planning goals which are then ranked and discussed at future meetings until a solution has been developed or discovered, or the issue no longer holds value. Throughout the year the ICAN team works to improve upon its programs and services utilizing these goals as one of many guiding frameworks. The following are the current list of council priorities: 

  • Planning to pay for college  – reaching parents sooner about saving for college
