At the University of Michigan, our values include a deep and ongoing commitment to creating and sustaining a community where the diversity of human experiences, perspectives and backgrounds are respected and celebrated; where campus members can feel a sense of belonging and empowerment to participate in our community; and where all have equitable opportunities for growth, success and thriving.

As an institution, we know – from a now large body of research and scholarship, and from our own history and experiences – that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are essential conditions for achieving the highest levels of academic excellence. These conditions also better enable our students, alums, faculty, and staff to use their world-class education, training and the knowledge and innovations we produce to make critical impacts and contributions to our society.
