Campus Involvement

A Message from CCI

Last Updated: November 20, 2020 | 2:00 p.m. EST

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has issued an Order mandating a "three-week pause" on many in-person activities on college campuses, including student organization activities starting November 18, 2020. We know that this will bring a range of challenges and difficulties for you and your organizations, and we are here to support you and to give clarity to these new directives. In-person gatherings are not permitted at this time. Please reference the University’s Maize and Blueprint for campus-level guidance. 

 

We at the Center for Campus Involvement know that this pivot brings a range of challenges and difficulties for you, your involvement, and your student organizations, particularly the many student organizations that have been adhering to public health measures in your work. Here is what the Stay at Home Order for Undergraduate Students means for campus involvement:

  • Programming: Any in-person events and meetings planned until December 9 should be shifted to virtual engagement, if possible. Visit the Fall 2020 Planning Guide for Student Organizations for advice on virtual meeting best practices, engaging your members & the campus community, and much more! Also, check out the CCI Facebook page and CCI Twitter feed to engage in valuable, topical content and learn about upcoming virtual programs for stress-relief and socialization! Check out the Happening Calendar for the latest upcoming campus programs!

  • Student Organization Development and Support: The Michigan Union IdeaHub is closed for student organization meetings and work until December 9. Virtual support is available via email (uminvolvement@umich.edu).

  • The Michigan Union Ticket Office continues to provide student organizations with a virtual ticketing service for live streaming events! Contact MUTO for virtual event support!

  • The Student Organization Resource Center continues to work with student organizations for advertisements. Contact SORC for any questions and existing and future reservations and services. 

  • The Student Theatre Arts Complex is closed for student rehearsals and practices for the time being. Contact STAC for scheduling adjustments, future reservations, and support needed to modify activities during this Stay at Home Order. 

We at CCI are open and available to you virtually. Please contact CCI with any questions you have about COVID-19 impacts on getting involved on campus, student organization needs and work (maizepages.umich.edu), campus programming, and services. We are available from anywhere Monday - Friday; 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. EST by email (uminvolvement@umich.edu). On-site assistance is available by appointment (schedule via email).

Go Blue and Take Care of Maize & Blue!
