Limitless, a Postsecondary Enrollment Learning Network


Limitless, a Postsecondary Enrollment Learning Network, brings together practitioners across Washington state who are leading the implementation of programs that support students’ transitions from high school to postsecondary education. That includes college and career readiness district directors, higher education enrollment staff, and nonprofit organizations providing advising and other college and career guidance support.  

The 25 partnerships in Limitless (see below for details) will have an opportunity to connect with teams of local K12 and higher education partners with peers across Washington state, creating opportunities to share information, explore new ideas, and develop best practices together. Local partnerships will learn from each other, share insights, improve program relevance and outcomes, and strengthen the state’s ecosystem of support—all with the goal of unlocking opportunities for young people across the state and helping more students take control of their own futures.  

Over the course of four academic years (23–24, 24–25, 25–26, 26–27), partnerships will engage in a wide range of learning activities such as virtual learning sessions and two-in person convenings each year. Partnerships receive $25,000 per academic school year and additional support for travel and lodging expenses through funding support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Please refer to the Welcome Packet for more detailed information.  

Learning Network Goals

The purpose and design of the Limitless Learning Network is to: 

partnership icon Improve partnership capacities to drive cross-system engagement, action and outcomes and support scaling in the long term across Washington State. 
Improve data capacity for increased access to and use of high school to postsecondary data among participating Learning Network members. 
Increase awareness and improve access to strategies and approaches (e.g., strategies related to high-quality advising, FAFSA and dual credit completion, etc.), as well as improve ability to implement these strategies among practitioner leaders who support the transition of students from high school to postsecondary and who prioritize closing equity gaps.
