University of Missouri

In 2007, the University of Missouri at Columbia successfully competed for a $1 million grant from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation to establish the Missouri College Advising Corps (MCAC). MCAC hires recent University of Missouri graduates to work in 41 partner high schools across Missouri to empower students to go to college and succeed.
