Real change means taking action. MCAN works to convene agents of change across government, education, and business to make a far-reaching impact across Michigan. We continuously communicate the significance of our goal to key decision-makers, we help students and communities on a broad scale.

Our yearly Advocacy Day brings together allies of MCAN from across the state to advocate for postsecondary education and highlight work being done to increase Michigan’s degree-attainment rate. MCAN schedules meetings with attendees' state legislators or their staff.
