MCA members provide a high quality, values-guided education in the liberal arts and sciences tradition. Our campuses represent smaller, nurturing environments that encourage self-discovery, leadership, ethical values, critical thinking, global intelligence, and civic engagement.
While individually our campuses are smaller, collectively, MCA is the “third largest university” in the state. MCA campuses currently enroll more than 41,000 students, studying in virtually every field and discipline. As a group, MCA institutions lead the state in both four-year graduation rates and minority student enrollment. Over 70 percent of our students are Michigan residents, and the majority remains in Michigan after graduation.
