As a student at the University of Michigan there are a number of opportunities to engage in the community and to exercise your civic duty. Community engagement is an important foundation of building a vibrant and connected society. Engaged students are informed and make communities stronger, healthier, more connected and better able to meet the needs of the people who live in them. Turn out to vote, volunteer in the community, participate in dialogues around social and political issues – it’s your opportunity to share your voice and shape your future.
The university is full of opportunities for learning, leadership, and personal growth; there are literally thousands of ways to Get Involved here. Consider exploring the Maize Pages for some of the more than 1,000 student-run organizations. And you can explore the Center for Campus Involvement for even more ideas. And if you’re looking for something fun or inspiring to do – take a look at the Happening @ Michigan calendar.
Remember: if it’s hard to choose or seems a bit overwhelming, Student Life can help!
