This report provides a process summary of the literature reviewed and the results of the service and demographic mapping conducted for the Austin College Access Network (ACAN) evaluation. It draws on program documents and interviews with key leaders in ACAN member organizations to create profiles of three comprehensive college access and persistence programs in Central Texas. The report’s conclusion highlights schools and target populations that are not being well-served by current college access and persistence efforts in the region. Recommendations for better targeting community resources and services at those identified gaps focus on best practices from the literature and lessons learned from ACAN member organizations.
