Updated information to better serve Detroit students
Dear Colleagues:

Here at Detroit College Access Network, we're always trying new ways to get you information you can use. That's why we're launching a new newsletter platform to better support you in ensuring your students have the resources, opportunities and information to achieve their educational dreams. We hope you find it useful!

Here's what you can expect:
The DCAN In-Depth - a larger, more detailed newsletter once a month.
A DCAN Update - more time-sensitive information or calls to action a couple of times per month.

As always, we welcome your feedback. Thank you for your work in promoting a college-going culture in Detroit!

Before the program, I didn’t think I could improve my score. However, they believed in me! That gave me the motivation to believe in myself. Thanks to DCAN, not only was I confident, but I was fully prepared on SAT day."
