The Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers is a nonprofit association of institutions of higher education. We provide opportunities for the exchange of information, networking, and professional development concerning issues of common interest in the areas of registration, record keeping, admissions, recruitment and enrollment management.

Founded in 1921, MACRAO is entering its 102nd year of continuous service to students, staff, and faculty of Michigan's colleges and universities.

Finding Equity in Education

Please join the Equity in Education Committee for this professional development event to explore what goes into the process of college decision making for underserved communities and what can we do to counteract some of those challenges. This year, we will be focusing on implementation and hoping to give attendees something to bring back to their offices/institutions to begin those conversations. The event will take place on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 from 10:00am to 1:00pm in Dearborn, MI. The registration deadline is Tuesday, May 23.
