The mission of the CASL Student Outreach and Academic Resources (SOAR) program is to increase access to post-secondary education for non-traditional adult learners in the metro area experiencing socioeconomic challenges. The program facilitates admission to the university using a holistic model and retains admitted students by offering a wide range of academic, financial, and personal support.

In partnership with local human service organizations, the SOAR Program is a tangible representation of the university’s Metropolitan Vision, “to bring the knowledge resources of the university into engagement with the needs of the people of southeastern Michigan.”

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”   - George Eliot
