The State of
Post-Secondary Access in Colorado Springs


This event will be bringing together local education, business, and civic leaders to share trends and opportunities in the attainment of higher education. This event will serve as a platform for informed discussions, collaborative problem-solving, and networking opportunities, contributing to the advancement of education, leadership, and workforce development in the region. You will also have the opportunity to explore approaches and emerging trends in post-secondary education to prepare students for the demands of the future job market.  


Sessions include two panel discussions to engage with topics of what the current landscape is of the attainment of higher education, how local businesses and organizations could address gaps, and why this is important when considering our regional pipeline of students to higher education and ultimately our workforce. The event will conclude on the Innovate COS initiative with a goal of allowing the audience to envision a future of exciting possibilities within the local landscape of education.
