Central Florida College Access Network (CFCAN) rebrands as UpliftED

The Central Florida College Access Network, a public-private collaboration committed to raising the attainment rate of college degrees and high-quality credentials in the Central Florida region, has rebranded as UpliftED.


The new name affirms the organization’s core belief in the power of education to elevate the Central Florida workforce, and expands the definition of education beyond the college setting. The brand’s new logo, color palette and graphic style will roll out across all communication platforms over the next few weeks, including their new website, UpliftED.org.


Amidst the change, UpliftED mains focused on the priorities and goals that they adopted at their founding in 2013. The partnership has led the effort to address barriers to college and career access, persistence, and attainment in Central Florida. They are working toward the Lumina Foundation Goal 2025, which is committed to increasing the number of adults in the local community with a high quality credential or degree to 60% by 2025.

UpliftED is a community-based college access alliance of community and education leaders representing K-12, higher education, the nonprofit sector, government, business, and philanthropy.
