Center for Campus Involvement

Give to Campus Involvement Center


The Center for Campus Involvement is a dynamic, student-focused department that serves students campus-wide through its programs and student organization support. Through meaningful involvement, the Center creates transformative experiences, a vibrant community, and lifelong memories for University of Michigan students.


While endowment funds are earmarked both in how they can be used and when, Annual Gifts are funds that the Center for Campus Involvement can use immediately and where needed most. Each academic year, the University faces unexpected challenges. Annual Gifts from donors like you are vital to ensure our ability to overcome obstacles and maintain the Michigan difference.


  • Every May, CCI coordinates “Leadership Connection,” a week-long retreat for student leaders. During this experience, students who represent their organization have the opportunity to network with other leaders, learn valuable leadership skills, and gain a better understanding for their role on-campus.


  • CCI sponsors over 300 student programs each year. These programs include the UMix late-night series, concerts, poetry slams, social justice speakers, art exhibits, dance competitions, family night, and student performances - just to name a few. These programs enhance the student experience outside of the classroom providing the opportunity for engagement in social and educational activities.

Student Organizations

  • CCI supports over 1200 recognized student organizations at the University of Michigan. Through our yearly “fests”, trainings, major events, and workshops we cultivate a tradition of involvement for students at the U-M community creating engaged members of society after graduation.
