Introducing the College Readiness Resource Center

Part of the College Readiness Resource Center, by College Success @ Perkins

In the College Success @ Perkins College Readiness Resource Center, you’ll find the latest insight from experts, as well as perspective on current research and guidance from students, families and educators who have been there – all designed to help you get proactive about college readiness planning.

Because, no matter where you and your student are on the journey, it’s never too early.

In this webinar, Leslie Thatcher, Program Director of College Success @ Perkins, and Annie Tulkin, MS, Founder and Director of Accessible College, take you on a guided tour of the Resource Center – including tips on how to make the most of it.

This session was the first in our three-part series, “College Readiness for Blind and Visually Impaired Students – from Resources to the Real World.” For more college readiness content, check out the other two sessions: Compass, from the Student Perspective and Compass, from the Educator Perspective.

We are here to help. If you have questions about college readiness planning, the Resource Center or the College Success @ Perkins initiative, reach out to us at [email protected].
