Student Services

Office of Academic and Multicultural Initiatives (OAMI)

OAMI works with campus and external partners to develop programs that provide resources, opportunities and experiences that enrich your academic, social, cultural, and personal development at U-M. OAMI supports the annual Dance for Mother Earth Powwow, graduation ceremonies, and cultural events that celebrate the achievements, commonalities and differences that characterize the experiences of African/African-American, Arab, Latino/a, and Native communities. Individual and students can apply for funding for multicultural events or projects through OAMI.

Office of New Student Programs (ONSP)

ONSP supports the continuous process of integrating and supporting students into the academic, cultural and social aspects of the University of Michigan. We sponsor a variety of programs to help new students engage in the U-M community.

The University Career Center

The University Career Center (UCC) inspires and supports students to transition confidently beyond college. Through professional development opportunities such as presentations and resume labs, the UCC helps students identify and pursue career pathways. The UCC also offers a broad range of resources, internship search support and networking opportunities.

LSA Opportunity Hub

The Hub team works as partners with students on one of the most important projects of their lives: forming a professional identity. We do this through coaching, interactive classes, alumni-hosted internships, internship scholarships, and opportunities to build important relationships with alumni and employers. Through all of these we foster reflection and meaning making, so that students are empowered with the self-knowledge to take their next step forward.

Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS)

CGIS provides undergraduate students with a wide variety of engagement and learning opportunities around the world. Programming features semester-long study abroad options (fall and winter terms), 3-10 week-long programs during spring and summer and academic- and calendar- year programs. CGIS offers a variety of financial aid options, and Pell Grant recipients receive an automatic waiver of the Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates (GIEU) program fee.

Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP)

UROP creates research partnerships between undergraduate students and University of Michigan researchers. The research ranges through multiple disciplines depending on the projects available (social science, humanities, biomedical, etc). The program is dedicated to providing advising support that helps in developing academic skills and research skills. The peer advisor component assists students with resume building, talking with faculty members and familiarizing students with resources across campus.

Center for the Education of Women

CEW+ empowers women and underserved individuals in the University of Michigan and surrounding communities by serving as an advocate and providing resources to help them reach their academic, financial, and professional potential. We provide immediate and ongoing services and the financial support needed to ensure educational success and degree completion. Women and underserved students are CEW+’s primary constituency, but all students are welcome. CEW+ also serves those who encounter education and career obstacles based on their non-linear paths to, and experiences within, the University community. We proudly support students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community with Events + Workshops, Funding, Counseling, and Advocacy Initiatives.

Center for Engineering Diversity & Outreach (CEDO)

CEDO plays a vital role in the implementation of the College’s strategic plan for diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our programming is designed to help develop highly sought-after engineering talent while exposing pre-collegiate students to the field of engineering and encouraging them to attend Michigan Engineering. CEDO also assists with the recruitment of students from communities that are traditionally underrepresented and underserved in engineering while working with current students to help with their academic, personal, and professional development.
