The Center for Excellence and College Readiness is a newly formed statewide hub for research, programming, and the development of best practice related to early college readiness and high school student preparation.  The CECR, co-directed by Naglaa Gaafar and Dr. Jess Geier, will focus on several multiple-site projects designed to bridge the gap in the social, academic, and cultural preparation high school students bring to the college campus.  In addition the CECR will partner with other state agencies to develop a statewide college access network, a group designed to provide professional development opportunities for college access practitioners.
