Fostering Achievement in Nebraska
Fostering Achievement in Nebraska (FAN) network convenes statewide stakeholders and leaders to share best practices and accelerate the discussion on the intersection of unconnected and opportunity students and postsecondary policy and practice in Nebraska. We utilize data, best practices, and student voice to improve equitable outcomes in postsecondary education attainment for students who are unconnected and/or considered opportunity students in Nebraska.
- Educational attainment: the completion of credential beyond high school diploma or GED such as certificate, associate degree, bachelor’s degree, and professional degree
- Unconnected youth: young people aged 14 to 26 that have experience in public systems such as foster care, juvenile justice, probation, homeless, and/or are at-risk of homelessness and/or experienced or at-risk of human trafficking
- Opportunity students: population of postsecondary students that include those that are pregnant/parenting, first-generation, indigenous, immigrant, and/or refugee
