Our Organization

When Central Michigan University made a commitment in 1994 to pioneer Michigan's charter school movement, it began developing an office that would be responsible for overseeing charter school compliance.

The Governor John Engler Center for Charter Schools at Central Michigan University consists of a team of professionals who are responsible for the daily oversight of the university's charter public schools. 

This team includes experts in the areas of special education, assessment, policy and governance. Having built a solid infrastructure based on highly trained and knowledgeable staff, The Governor John Engler Center for Charter Schools has become a national leader in charter school oversight.
