Our Time with Your Student...

Spring has gotten off to a very slow start in Ann Arbor – and much of the Midwest.  Nevertheless, the sense of spring is very much apparent on campus. Change, renewal and hope are in the air.

Our Time with Your Student...

No doubt, moving on from the life of an undergraduate is a big adventure, whether your student is considering a career, an advanced degree, or a tour of duty as a volunteer in a service program.

Message from the Vice President

Very soon, tens of thousands of students will be moving to Ann Arbor to begin or resume their studies at the University of Michigan.  For each one, it is part of a life’s journey.

Message from the Vice President

After the emotional highs of exams, moving out, commencement ceremonies, and saying farewell to students heading out for the summer or off to a new life adventure, you might think that the University collectively exhales and relaxes for the next few months.  Not really.

Message From the Vice President

One of the aspects of student life at U-M that constantly inspires me is the depth and breadth of activities that students undertake in service to others.  With all their commitments to learning and research, our students seem to have a tremendous capacity to give of their time and energies for the benefit of other people, communities and global issues.

Armstrong Scholarship

The Armstrong Scholarship was established in 2011 by the parents of Chris Armstrong, the first openly gay student-elected president of the Michigan Student Assembly, now called the Central Student Government.  The scholarship was set up in his name to help teenagers who face bullying attend the university.
