College Essay Revision Partnership (CERP)
We believe all high school students should have access to resources that can support their college essay writing and application processes, ultimately fulfilling their full potential and their acceptance into their dream college. Many motivated students do not necessarily have university-level writing resources to help them express themselves through their essays and guide them through the college application process, both of which are highly important to college admittance.
CERP is working to remedy this lack of access, especially in low-income areas, by creating partnerships between high school and UM students to help them develop essays showcasing their strengths, creativity, and their full potential. We are hoping to work with Sweetland, Admissions, and other campus institutions to develop a trained corps of dedicated college students to serve as editors and mentors. The partnership will be fostered via text, email, video conferencing, and even meeting in person. We are hoping to support these students in Ann Arbor and/or Detroit schools who would not otherwise have access to these resources.
