This report describes the progress of the Michigan Adult Literacy Initiative (MALI), adopted by the Michigan Board of Education in 1985, through 1990. It covers the collaborative accomplishments of a statewide team of literacy supporters that represents a comprehensive spectrum of public and private concerns. Part I is an introduction that discusses the following: the origin of MALI; responsibilities of the Michigan Department of Education, Statewide Literacy Coordinators, and Regional Literacy Facilitators; and collaborators and benefits of collaboration. A chart lists contributions made by literacy collaborators. Part II provides descriptions of the following literacy collaborators: adult basic education; volunteer tutoring; libraries; students; government agencies; colleges and universities; business, industry, and labor; the media; community-based organizations; foundations; and religious organizations. Part III focuses on programs that have been developed for special populations: English as a Second Language, migrant literacy, the incarcerated, family literacy, homeless people, health impaired, senior citizens, youth, and children. A section outlines some highlights of MALI: Staff Development Collaborative grants, Job Training Partnership Act, literacy conferences, Michigan Method of tutor training, literacy hotline, National Issues Forums, adult learners' Leadership Academy, and Michigan Institute for Adult Learning and Literacy.
