Michigan College Advising Corps


The goal of the Michigan College Advising Corps is to increase the number of low-income, first-generation and underrepresented students entering and
completing higher education in the state of Michigan. Following in the tradition of the AmeriCorps and Teach for America programs, the MCAC recruits and trains a diverse group of recent U-M graduates to work full-time as college advisers in underserved high schools throughout Michigan for one or two years following graduation.

In the 2013-2014 academic year, advisers served the following high schools: Battle Creek Central High School, Benton Harbor High School, Saginaw High School, Pontiac High School, Ottawa Hills High School, Muskegon High School, Port Huron High School, Lansing J.W. Sexton High School, Holland High School, Flint Northwestern High School, Lansing Eastern High School, Flint Southwestern High School, and Jackson High School. MCAC advisers have been a critical element in transforming the college-going culture in these partner schools and communities.
