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.
