The global economy demands a workforce with an education beyond high school. In order to build and sustain a vibrant economy and healthy community, WCCAN, servicing out-Wayne County, is supporting Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s statewide postsecondary education goal: 60 percent of Michigan residents complete a postsecondary certificate or degree by the year 2030.
The Wayne County College Access Network will mobilize local and regional organizations and resources to:
- Provide more effective educational support to all learners and create a college-going culture in all out- Wayne county schools.
- Lower systematic barriers preventing students from pursuing education beyond high school.
- Improve coordination of higher education access services, particularly to those who come from low-income families, students of color or are first in their families seeking post-secondary attainment.
