MAC Scholars Program
The Multicultural Advancement and Lloyd M. Cofer Scholarships are awarded to students who have previously exemplified in high school and pledged a continued commitment at Central Michigan University to academic achievement, community service, enhancing diversity, multiculturalism and inclusion. All freshmen scholars live in the Multicultural Advancement and Lloyd M. Cofer Scholars Residential Community. This dynamic living and learning community aims to increase student success and retention through academic and social support services. Emphasis is placed on promoting academic achievement, increasing support through peer relationships, and encouraging individual growth at Central Michigan University. The residents (also known as Diversity Champions) of the Multicultural Advancement and Lloyd M. Cofer Residential Community believe in and are committed to promoting educational excellence, diversity, and community service in order to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all members of the Central Michigan University and Mt. Pleasant communities.
Located centrally as part of the Towers complex, residents have the easy access to the fitness center, convenience store, residential restaurant, math and writing centers, academic advisors, the computer lab and more! The MACRC accomplishes its goal by creating a close-knit community of scholars and University represented "diversity champions" who are socially active and concerned with promoting diversity and understanding on our campus and in our community.
