Give to the Office of the Vice President

The University of Michigan is committed to transforming our students’ education by extending academic excellence from the classroom into real-world experiences that develop a global purview and a creative, entrepreneurial mindset.

The Office of the Vice President serves as the central location for the units, programs, and services of Student Life – all committed to preparing students to live lives of dignity and purpose, to channel new knowledge to humane ends, and to promote the public good. Student Life is charged with facilitating a positive Michigan experience for all students and supporting their overall development.

The Vice President’s office provides centralized services such as communications, planning, administrative oversight, research, technology, and professional and organizational development. The VP’s office coordinates the Student Life Leadership Assembly, Family Matters newsletter for parents and families, and meets regularly with its Student Advisory Board (see below).

Student Life is committed to student learning and the development of the whole student. We facilitate transformation and enrich education through new opportunities for learning and development; fostering an environment for the success of all community members; developing a deeper understanding of ourselves and others on an inclusive campus; enabling students to practice positive physical, emotional, social, intellectual, mental, and spiritual health; preparing students to succeed during and after their university experience; resolving complex issues through advocacy, services, and compliance; and providing programs and facilities for the physical, social, psychological, academic, and recreational needs of the campus community. 

To do all this, and much more, Student Life needs your support—every gift matters.
