Programs and Initiatives

All of our work centers on a single core purpose: helping more students go to college and graduate with a certificate or a degree. From our programs that provide direct support to students, to our efforts to increase public understanding and influence policy with respect to important issues affecting college access and attainment, we are committed to serving students, families, and communities throughout our state.

Success Services

Learning about and choosing a college. Paying for college. Persisting and staying on track. Students face numerous challenges and obstacles during their college journey, many which have little to do with their academic abilities, that can derail their progress toward graduation. Sustained access mentorship and guidance can make all the difference for low-income and first-generation students and their families as they navigate the college-going process.


For more than a decade Arizona College Access Network has been improving colleges access services for low-income and first-generation students in Arizona by facilitating collaboration and coordination among a robust network of college access professionals and programs in our state, and through capacity-building for individuals and organizations. In 2019-20, we continued this legacy, alongside our 236 members, and extended it by helping to launch AdviseAZ and Project Benjamin, two innovative efforts to expand college access in our state.

Thought Leadership

Engaging Arizonans, from our neighbors to our legislators, in the ongoing conversation about how our state can increase opportunities for students to go to college and, just as importantly, graduate with a certificate or degree is an important part of the work we do.
