Starting at UM? Complete your CIRP survey!

We are excited to welcome you to the University. Over the coming weeks, if you are a first year undergraduate, you'll be preparing to attend New Student Orientation. We want to let you know about a survey we hope you will complete during that orientation.


Undergraduate Entering Student Profile 2016

It is easy to assume that students today are like students 10, 20, or 30 years ago. However, part of the work we do with CIRP data is to investigate how students at Michigan change over the years – to challenge our assumptions. We also show how students are different at Michigan (or are not different) from students at other public highly selective universities. We hope this snapshot helps you understand our students a bit better.
