Our Vision and Values

College is cloud website home page

The Michigan College Access Network works to increase college readiness and completion in Michigan, particularly among low-income students, first-generation college students, and students of color. Every day, MCAN partners with individuals and organizations to advocate for policies and programs that lower barriers for in their quest for higher education. "

Reaching for Opportunity Report

The Reaching for Opportunity Report outlines a goal of reaching 60 percent of Michiganders with education and training beyond high school by 2025. Leaders from business and education came together last year as the Postsecondary Credential Attainment Workgroup to develop a new action plan for how Michigan can achieve the necessary education and training beyond high school. The report outlines the challenges and opportunities along with recommendations for strategic actions and policies to increase credential attainment, essential to raise incomes, create new jobs, and grow Michigan's economy.
