"The Ohio College
Access Network (OCAN) was founded in 1999, by KnowledgeWorks Foundation, in
collaboration with the Ohio Board of Regents and Ohio Department of Education.
With these partners and the Ohio Business Roundtable, OCAN works to establish
college access programs across Ohio. OCAN is the first statewide coordinating
body for college access programs in the nation. The organization is focused
on helping Ohio residents pursue postsecondary education by building and supporting
local college access programs throughout the state. Currently, 36 college
access programs serve nearly 225 of Ohio's 612 school districts, and 17 private/parochial
schools in 46 counties." - this statement is from OCAN's background information
on their website.
