The University of Michigan at Ann Arbor has participated in the entering undergraduate student study of the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) each year since 1993. UM has over a decade of trend information about incoming students. By learning about the changes and similarities over this time, we can be better prepared to educate these students during their undergraduate years, and to ask questions of future students that may aid in their education and graduation.
Undergraduate Student Body Profiles
The undergraduate student profiles offer valuable insight into incoming freshmens’ backgrounds, goals, past and anticipated engagements within and outside of the classroom for a given year, as well as how these factors have changed over time.
The CIRP Factbook provides a unique window to study trends that affect how we create meaningful learning experiences for undergraduate students.
