Letter from VP Harmon


Dear Wolverine Families,

There are three very special times in the academic year when we typically get to welcome parents and families to campus: move-in, end-of-year activities, and of course, Parent & Family Weekend.

The special time that you share with your Wolverine during Parent & Family Weekend is unique because it is a time that focuses entirely on welcoming you—the ones who made and defined their first home. While Michigan may become their “home away from home” during their academic career, we know that everything you have done for them, all of the support and encouragement that you have shown them throughout their lives until now, is precisely what prepared them to join the Leaders & Best. And it’s our privilege and pleasure to host you on campus and help your student show you what they love so much about being here.

We are grateful that you have chosen to entrust your students to the University of Michigan. The lessons they learn here go far beyond the classroom, and the bonds they form with their fellow Wolverines will last a lifetime. This weekend, we invite you to experience this with them.


Martino Harmon, Ph.D.     
Vice President for Student Life
