Jane Inman Stormer, senior associate director of admission, accepted the Inclusion, Access and Success Award in September during the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) national conference in Salt Lake City. The honor recognizes individuals who have been instrumental in making post-secondary educational opportunities available to historically underrepresented students.

Stormer accepted the award on behalf of the Indiana Association of College Admission Counseling’s Inclusion Access and Success Committee. She served as co-chair of the group, which developed Transitions for Youth Conference: Building Bridges from Homelessness to College Access and Success.

The one-day event, held in December 2017, aimed to raise awareness and find solutions to barriers facing Indiana’s growing homeless student population. The program was selected by NACAC to receive a Rising Star Award, which honors individuals and programs that exemplify excellence and dedication to serving the needs of students in the transition from high school to college.
