For Faculty

Faculty at the University of Michigan are essential in our DEI effort. This section includes resources that are not only beneficial to support their efforts, but also includes a list of faculty advisors  that are able to guide individuals and groups on a range of topics related to DEI. If there’s a U-M resource you’re aware of that is not listed or you can’t find what you’re looking for, please contact diversitymatters@umich.edu.
