Academic excellence

Success in school, and in later life, is predicated on a commitment to learning and personal development. The CEO encourages students to cultivate their intellectual abilities fully and to prepare for the future through academic achievement at the highest levels.

Access to higher education

Through partnerships and information sharing, the CEO encourages students to plan for college attendance and to realize the value of higher education. At the same time, the CEO encourages colleges and universities to work collaboratively with schools and community agencies to provide access to higher education and financial aid.

Diversity in college enrollment

The rich diversity of our society should be reflected in college classrooms in order to fully prepare college graduates for the roles they will play as leaders, managers, and professionals in society. Thus, the CEO promotes and supports efforts to enroll a diverse student body at the college level.

Empowerment through higher education

College attainment is a gateway to economic security and improved quality of life. The CEO's
programs and activities emphasize the benefits and personal empowerment that result from attending college.

Expanding educational opportunity

The CEO recognizes that a democratic society depends on an informed and involved citizenry, that managers and leaders need accurate information when making decisions, and that society benefits from the advances and insights that are developed through higher learning.

The Center for Educational Outreach is a University of Michigan initiative that seeks to ensure academic excellence for all K-12 schoolchildren in the state of Michigan.
