Events & Training

At Michigan College Access Network, we hold regular events, training opportunities, and seminars to not only inform change makers about the importance of promoting a college-going culture but to empower them to actually create this positive change. Our programs are tailored to different audiences with varying experience levels—because when it comes to making postsecondary education accessible to everyone, we always have more to learn. 

Advocacy Day

MCAN and college access and success organizations from across the state will meet with state legislators to advocate for postsecondary education and highlight work being done to increase Michigan’s degree-attainment rate.
