The University’s largest-ever fundraising campaign, the first in which Student Life has participated with articulated goals, is thoughtful, visionary, and transformative – worthy of the name “Victors for Michigan.” 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—be a Victor for Student Life. Be a Victor for Michigan.
