Spanning the Gaps

Spanning the Gaps – Access to Post-Secondary Education believes that education can break cycles of intergenerational poverty and social exclusion, and that post-secondary education can transform lives and contribute to social cohesion, social stability, and a civic society. By offering holistic and innovative transitional programing, we seek to create accessible pathways to post-secondary education for adults and young people, who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience post-secondary education. We work with learners to build academic capacity through a strong community of students, staff, and alumni, built on the principles of academic foundations, holistic support, diversity, inclusion, and community engagement.

Our goal is to increase the post-secondary participation of adults and young people who might not otherwise experience post-secondary education. Through our programs we are expanding educational opportunities and building educational capacity across communities in the Greater Toronto Area.

Spanning the Gaps students have access to Ryerson University’s resources and support services. Visit Ryerson’s Student Affairs website for more information.
