Promoting College and Career Readiness and Access for the Capital Area

The Capital Area College Access Network (CapCAN) is a community collaborative focused on making completion of postsecondary education an achieveable reality for all residents  by fostering high educational aspirations through the alignment of our institutions and resources.  Our geographic area includes Ingham and Eaton counties. Our goal is to increase college and post secondary readiness, participation, and completion.  Our network includes representatives from education, higher education, business, nonprofit, philanthrophy, and government stakeholders.  CapCAN targets our support and services to low-income, communities of color, and first-generation students.  Help us create a college- going culture!


The FUTURE Awaits

Education is an investment in the future of the individual, our community, our economy, and our nation.  Learn more about the college attainment status of our community in CapCAN's DASHBOARD.   CapCAN utilizes the Collective Impact process to unite our network constituents and strategically guide our action.  The CapCAN Common Agenda, Goals, Objectives, and Action Teams are defined in this  Common Agenda powerpoint.  


The World Has Changed

A high school diploma alone is not enough for our young people to transition from high school to the workforce.  The 21st century global economy demands a more educated workforce.  The job forecast predicts that over 70% of jobs in Michigan will require some form of degree or credential beyond high school by 2020.  CapCAN has adopted the national goal to increase the percentage of adults (ages 25 to 64) who complete a two-year or four-year degree from 48% in Ingham and 38% in Eaton to 60% overall by 2025.
