Real change means taking action. MCAN works to align leaders and advocates from government, education, and workforce sectors to make far-reaching impacts across Michigan. We continuously communicate the significance of our goal to key policymakers, and we help students and communities by supporting bipartisan legislative solutions to college access and success barriers.

Our annual 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.
