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.


  • Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) Research Mentors

    UROP Research Mentors are faculty and post-doc researchers who provide undergraduate student researchers an opportunity to engage in research activities that help them learn about the pursuit of knowledge within an academic discipline. This early exposure to research fosters a valuable academic experience for students. Through this collaboration, students gain research skills and mentorship that lead to academic retention, a more positive undergraduate experience and paths to graduate school. Supplementary funding is available to research mentors.

  • University Initiative on Disability Studies

    Seeks to expand diversity at the University of Michigan by integrating the study of disability into research, scholarship, and teaching.

  • Veterans and Military-Connected Students

    Military-Connected Students bring unique and valuable perspectives to their university experience. As part of the overall university DEI objectives, faculty and staff are able to learn more about military-connected students as a valued and vital component of the campus community. The University recognizes and honors their sacrifices and values their life experiences as they broaden the diversity of our student body.

  • Women in Science and Engineering

    Is designed to increase the number of girls and women pursuing degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics while fostering their future success. While the Women in Science and Engineering Programs are open to all students, they are designed to encourage and support women and girls.

  • Women’s Studies

    Seeks to build interdisciplinary collaborations among faculty and students that bridge gender, racial, ethnic, economic, and national divides; develop knowledge about women, gender, race, class, sexuality, and disability; and challenge unequal distributions of power; and improve the lives of all individuals and communities.
