HIGHLIGHTS: 32 high school counselors from across Nebraska and nine college admission professionals gathered together on October 20 to discuss access to higher education and the college exploration and application process.  Counselors participated in a mock application review and college admission panel, attended breakout sessions, and networked with colleagues and colleges.  We are pleased to share the breakout session slides from the Institute.

We would like to thank the colleges that assisted with making this event possible.
