Colorado Success UNlimited

Welcome to the Colorado Success UNlimited (Colorado SUN) initiative. This web page offers access to information about successful strategies employed in the SUN initiative from 2007 to 2010 as well as tools to help bridge out-of-school and academically under-prepared students into college and certificate and degree programs.

The Colorado SUN initiative, funded by the Office of Vocational and Adult Education (DOE), was a college prep program designed to move GED graduates and adult learners forward, reduce remedial training, and build confident, successful students who are ready for college and careers. We encourage – and hope – you will share this information with friends, colleagues, students, partners, and stakeholders.
