How MCAN is Adapting in Response to COVID-19

We Are Open and Available to Serve You

MCAN prioritizes the well-being of our staff and network. Considering the COVID-19 pandemic and state of emergency caused by the novel coronavirus, staff has been given the opportunity to work virtually. However, we are continuing normal operations as much as possible. MCAN staff is still accessible during regular business hours (9 a.m.–5 p.m.) via phone, email, and other virtual means. Our team might not always be working from the office, but we are ready to serve you! Please continue to lean on us.

Events and Meetings

As you likely have heard, MCAN's 10th annual conference was postponed until Nov. 23-24. We will keep the network updated regarding upcoming events and meetings. We are evaluating the situation daily and will make decisions as needed. Future events and meetings may look and feel different than we are accustomed to. MCAN respects individuals' personal and professional decisions about event and meeting participation.

Advisers

AdviseMI college advisers are doing their best to provide support to students and families, but will not be serving in school buildings at this time. If you have questions about the program's plan, please contact AdviseMI Program Director Mel Steward via email: Melissa(a)micollegeaccess.org.

Ready to Help You Move Onward!

MCAN is 100% committed to college access and attainment of Sixty by 30. There is still important work to do. In that spirit, we are tackling each day with the same energy in order to maintain momentum. As we move forward in this fluid, ever-changing environment, know that MCAN is ready to support the entire network in navigating how to accomplish our tasks under these unique circumstances.

I’m grateful to the MCAN team members for their unwavering commitment to our mission and goals. We are in this together!

Wishing you good health,

Ryan Fewins-Bliss
Executive Director
