Mission

Through meaningful involvement, we create transformative experiences, a vibrant community, and lifelong memories for University of Michigan students.

Vision

Student involvement shapes leaders who change our world. We believe that every student has the potential to be a leader, and that our activities, programs and student organizations are integral to transformative student learning at the University of Michigan. The development and meaning-making that result from these experiences propel our work.

Our office is an inclusive and welcoming community. Students are challenged to develop new ideas, critically examine different perspectives, anticipate the impact of their decisions within a socially just context, and work together to find innovative solutions. We engage students in campus activities and student organizations that provide meaningful co-curricular learning. These opportunities create life long memories and strengthen our Michigan tradition: a tradition rooted in rich history, but continually looking forward.

The Center for Campus Involvement is a model for campus collaboration, team work, and building relationships. Our work fosters a vibrant campus environment, and promotes a community characterized by creativity, leadership, and global citizenship. The experiences we provide empower our students to challenge the present and enrich the future.

The center for Campus Involvement values Student Centeredness, Excellence, Michigan Pride, Collaboration, Inclusivity & Creativity. With these values we bring our vision and mission to life.

Center for Campus Involvement Advisory Board

We have established an advisory board comprised of students from across campus and varying involvement experiences that are committed to improving the student involvement experience at the University of Michigan. The Center for Campus Involvement Advisory Board will assist the staff of the office by providing a student perspective of the current campus climate regarding the student experience. This will be accomplished through monthly Board meetings that will focus on learning, discussion, and collaboration about key student involvement issues raised by students to strengthen the work of the Center for Campus Involvement.
