Supporting our community
The wellness of all of our students is important to CSE. Listed below are resources to support inclusion and student wellness at the University:
Center for Engineering Diversity and Outreach
Provides expertise, leadership, and programming designed to help develop highly sought-after engineering talent while exposing pre-collegiate students to the field of engineering.
Student support services
The Michigan Engineering C.A.R.E. Center has compiled a list of resources that support a variety of student needs, including financial, health, safety, and academic.
Trotter Multicultural Center
A campus facilitator and coordinator of intercultural engagement and inclusive leadership education initiatives for University of Michigan students.
Works toward enhancing the campus climate and support services for LGBTQ+ students, staff, and faculty.
CSE Grants and Awards for Climate Work
CSE seeks to support the climate efforts already being undertaken by students and student organizations across the College of Engineering and the University. In addition to the DEI Service Award for both Graduate and Undergraduate Students, CSE has launched a new initiative to financially support these efforts in the form of “Excellence in Creating Inclusivity” Grants. Our hope is that these grants will allow student organizations to access more resources and increase the capacity of existing programs.
These grants are available for mentorship and wellness programs as well as initiatives that aim to increase diversity. Student organizations can find out more information and apply on this document.
These organizations represent both U-M groups and national groups with active U-M chapters. For more information about other student organizations, visit Maize Pages.
