Why MCAN?

Montana's large geographical area leaves many citizens without a "near-by" college. This phenomenon is known nationally as an education desert.​

Montana's economy is struggling with a lack of a qualified and skilled workforce.

Montana students do not attain post-secondary educational goals at the same rates as other states or the nation. 

A high percentage of Montana students who are in our K-12 systems have experience trauma that affects their educational goals.
