AdviseMI Job Description
The Michigan College Access Network (MCAN) in close partnership with Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, Michigan Technological University, Oakland University, University of Michigan‐Dearborn, Wayne State University, and Western Michigan University seek to help more Michigan students pursue postsecondary education.
Recent graduates from the partner universities will serve as advisers in selected high schools across Michigan, particularly those that are located in communities with low college‐going rates and low adult educational attainment rates. Working alongside high school counselors and other school professionals, AdviseMI Members (Advisers) will support students as they make the transition from high school to a postsecondary education institution. Advisers work full time and focus on mentoring students (especially those from low‐income backgrounds) through the complex steps toward college enrollment.
Advisers will provide students and their families with relevant information regarding the benefits of a postsecondary education, preparing for college attendance, and the admission and financial aid processes.
Advisers will commit to a term of service beginning late July 2015 through June 2016. These appointments include a mandatory four‐week training session in East Lansing beginning July. All training expenses including room, board and travel are covered by the program. In an effort for the Advisers to be fully enmeshed in the fabric of the local communities, Advisers are expected to live in the community in which they are assigned. Upon successful completion of the first school year commitment, Advisers may be invited to return for one to two additional school years of service to AdviseMI.
