We pass the details of these opportunities on to you in any effort to keep our community informed, but, unless explicitly stated, we are not endorsing these organizations or the opportunities they are presenting.

As a LEAD Scholar, students are part of a unique community. They’ll have opportunities for alumni engagement, mentoring, career guidance, peer-to-peer support, exclusive programs, and so much more. Learn more about the program at umalumni.com/LEAD.
The Alumni Association, along with the University, believes that being exposed to different cultures and people allows us to see things from different perspectives, gain insight and understanding, and share unique ideas. It enriches the lives of everyone here. And it allows Michigan to be the best possible place from which to learn.
