Canopy Information, Locations & Guidelines

Reservable Event Canopies

For one year only and during pandemic recovery, Campus is making available canopies to specifically support U-M outdoor events. The event canopies are available for U-M student organizations, departments, and U-M sponsored organizations to support the vibrancy of campus. Canopies are unfurnished, and event organizers are responsible for all vendor coordination (e.g. furniture rental, event set-up, and trash coordination) based on the needs of their individual events. Reservations are required, and events are to be coordinated with Facilities & Operations Outdoor Events (Central Campus canopy location) or the Center for Campus Involvement (North Campus canopy location).

Student Mental Health Innovative Approaches Review Committee Report - August 2021

A committee of deans, faculty, and staff across U-M Academic Affairs and Student Life areas released a new report that outlines a comprehensive approach for transforming how the health and wellbeing needs of students can be holistically addressed on the Ann Arbor campus.

Last spring, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Susan M. Collins and Vice President for Student Life Martino Harmon tasked the 12-member Student Mental Health Innovative Approaches Review Committee with exploring and recommending holistic, innovative approaches to addressing student mental health and well-being. The group—co-chaired by Dean of Students Laura  Blake Jones and Senior Vice Provost Amy Dittmar—examined current resources at U-M as well as convened a series of town hall meetings and outreach sessions to solicit the input of students, faculty and staff across campus.

In August 2021, the committee released its recommendations, which span four broad themes of recommended areas of strategic and innovative change—each with its own series of supporting  recommendations.

Student Life Outcomes Report 2020-2021

"It is exciting to have these stories to tell, stories about how we didn’t lose our core work or our strategic priorities amid the pandemic. We simply learned how to do it differently."

- Martino Harmon, Vice President for Student Life

In August 2021, the Division of Student Life published the first-ever Student Life Outcomes Report for the University of Michigan. This detailed analysis of Student Life's work during the 2020-21 academic year was prepared by the Student Life Research and Communications, Marketing, and Design teams with input from staff throughout the division. The report uses a wide range of stories of divisional efforts and outcomes to paint a comprehensive picture of how Student Life adapted and innovated new ways of serving students while maintaining its commitment to its mission during an atypical year.
