We develop and advocate for concrete recommendations to improve and strengthen state-level policies and financial investments to equitably improve student access and outcomes, including minimizing loan debt.

Our Priorities

Access: Support the enhancement of students’ exposure to quality postsecondary education opportunities and develop a simplified process for acquiring financial aid to eliminate the “guesswork” and complex steps for students/families navigating postsecondary opportunities.

Affordability: Broaden the conception of college affordability in the state of Michigan to include costs beyond tuition and fees while equitably expanding financial aid resource allocation to mitigate costs and minimize student debt.

Completion: Elevate the importance of intensive support and wrap-around basic need resources for students in pursuit of postsecondary credentials.
