The following message was sent on Monday, August 21, 2023, to subscribers of the Family Matters e-newsletter

Dear families and parents, 

We know that you are critical to our Wolverines’ success, both inside and outside the classroom. And sometimes, you may need some extra support as you support your student's growth and success. 

The Dean of Students Office within the U-M Division of Student Life is thrilled to announce MFamily, the parent and family engagement program. MFamily offers more ways to connect, engage and communicate, both with campus leaders and other families.  

Early next week, you’ll receive an invitation to join our new interactive MFamily Portal, a digital community where you’ll find the latest campus news and information.   

From institutional news to snippets of campus life, our portal offers:

  • More customized communication options.
  • One convenient space to find our full family of programs and events—many designed specifically for you!
  • New ways to get involved and help shape future program offerings.
