Students from rural communities face unique obstacles and need unique supports in pursuing higher education. Colleges, who are increasingly seeking to recruit more students from rural communities, also face unique challenges in connecting with and recruiting these students. In this webinar, Andrew Moe from Swarthmore College and Megan Taylor from the University of Michigan will share their expertise and discuss how school counselors, CBO advisers, and college admissions can work together to achieve better student outcomes.

Topics will include:


  • Importance of this topic in relation to the national conversation on college access

  • Challenges colleges have in recruiting rural students
  • Ideas and practices for counselors (school and CBO) to better support their rural students
