The University of Michigan delivers a world-class education to students, preparing them with critical knowledge, skills, and opportunities to be leaders in an increasingly complex world. Catalyzing and supporting students as they build the knowledge, skills, and agency for full participation in civic life must be a fundamental part of that education.
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.
With the goals of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Harm Reduction and Well-Being, Telling Our Story, Structure/Infrastructure for Sustainability and Success, Student Life seeks to make a positive impact on the lives of U-M students.
