It is that time of year again: Michigan vs Michigan State football, and this year the rivalry game also coincides with Halloween. As our teams meet this weekend -- both with undefeated records -- we ask that you honor our 114-year-old historic rivalry by showing civility and respect for each other.
Dear University of Michigan Community:
As Wolverines, the importance of cultivating a culture of care for self and others has always been paramount and is of particular importance in this shared moment of crisis and challenge. It is right for us to reflect on the values we hold as individuals and the values we embrace as a community. University values are outlined in the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities: Civility, dignity, diversity, education, equality, freedom, honesty, and safety. These values stand as long-held community-defined commitments rooted in social justice and put into practice through a restorative approach. It is these values which continue to serve as a guide as we live into our Pledge to Take Care of the Maize & Blue.
Student Life is committed to student learning and the development of the whole student in a diverse campus community. Through our programs, services, facilities and partnerships, we facilitate students' transformation and enrich their education.
