SHARE HOW YOU OVERCAME ADVERSITY TO EARN YOUR DEGREE, AND HELP PAVE THE ROAD FOR THOSE WHO FOLLOW

The ACT Center for Equity in Learning has collaborated with Better Make Room and Roadtrip Nation to create a community where individuals who overcame the odds in pursuit of a post–secondary education can share their stories and advice. Use our “Share Your Road” tool to recount the steps you took to get to where you are today—and the struggles you worked through along the way—and your inspiring story will help aspiring and current post–secondary students surmount the hurdles in their own lives.
