Student Life

Civic Engagement

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.
