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.


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.


How are our Fall 2014 sophomores different from those ten years prior?

As we continue to greet our incoming class of students, we also plan for our rising sophomores. Incoming students take the CIRP First Year Student Survey during New Student Orientation. What we learn from this information informs learning across the whole University. This particular snapshot shows our students in comparison to UM students ten years prior. See if your assumptions about student trends match reality.
