We promote and provide access to higher education for students of color, low-income students, and first generation college students. We provide professional development and networking opportunities for our members.

To establish, maintain, and participate in cooperative programs, workshops, and materials designed to support the populations we serve in gaining access to college. While recognizing that each member may represent an individual institution, NECBAC is committed to providing students with information in order for them to make well informed higher education decisions. NECBAC provides relevant and practical professional development opportunities by identifying the needs of members to the profession and those seeking upward mobility in their careers, and using internal and external resources to meet those needs. We seek to remain fluid as the needs of our members and the communities we serve evolve.
