Leading high schools are placing an increasing emphasis on systems to best support students and families understand their multiple options at colleges and universities at home and around the globe, with the goal of finding the one which best suits their own aspirations and interests. The IC3 Regional Forums are aligned with IC3’s mission to empower schools to build and maintain robust, well-resourced and research-oriented career and college counseling offices. The IC3 Regional Forums enable access for hundreds of schools that have limited resources for travel and training of their principals, teachers, and counselors. Other key objectives of the IC3 Regional Forums are bringing inclusiveness, diversity, and quality.

Hosted at local high schools, the IC3 Regional Forums are a series of one-day events that provide an opportunity for learning and new knowledge creation along with networking. Counselors, teachers, and principals from the local area interact with universities from across the globe.
