Michigan College Access Network 2020 Annual Report

Equity through college access.

Michigan College Access Network aims to increase the percentage of Michigan residents with postsecondary certificates or degrees to 60% by the year 2030. By expanding access, we are also able to promote equity in our state. We work to ensure every student in Michigan has the opportunity to attend college — especially low-income students, first-generation college-going students and students of color.

Our Values

College is postsecondary education

We use the term college to refer to attainment of education beyond high school, including postsecondary certificates and academic degrees.

College is a necessity

Postsecondary attainment dramatically increases an individual’s economic independence in a knowledge-based economy.

College is for everyone

We work toward changing the systems that perpetuate inequities in postsecondary attainment.

College is a public good

Postsecondary attainment is critical to a just and equitable society, strong economy, thriving democracy, and healthy communities.
