How can you help your students be successful on campus? Encourage them to get involved!
Welcome back to all our students, parents, and families. And if your family is new to the University of Michigan – welcome to Student Life!
What started out as an opportunity to earn money with a short commute for one student, turned out to be a chance to build "soft skills" that employers highly value.
Students moving out of University Housing this month have many options to recycle, re-use, and donate items to minimize waste and keep the planet green.
The end of the academic year is an exciting time on Michigan’s campus. Your student may be experiencing anxiety or joy, uncertainty or celebration. Or a bit of all of that! For some on campus, April has brought conflict and even controversy. We in Student Life are right there with them.
Conflict is a normal part of the human experience. And college is a common time in which students learn to navigate conflicts in ways that may be new to them.
Have you ever been concerned about a situation and wanted to help... but didn't? You're not alone! That's called being a bystander: someone who's watching, but not involved. Change it Up! is giving students the tools & confidence to make a difference in all sorts of situations.
In my service as Vice President for Student Life, I often have the opportunity to witness true excellence; it comes in many forms in our students' lives. Unfortunately, it also happens sometimes that our students fail to live up to and reflect that standard.
If your student is seeking a supportive space on campus where they can find their community, relax and rejuvenate, or meet up with like-minded others, consider suggesting that they visit the Trotter Multicultural Center!
