The University of Michigan is committed to providing opportunities for all students to participate in high-impact engaged learning experiences.

When undergraduate students apply to graduate, they self-report on whether they participated in seven engaged learning experiences during their time at U-M:  civic engagement, client-based projects, creative work and performance, entrepreneurship, international experience, internships, and research.

The Engaged Learning Census (ELC) launched in October 2016. In the most recent report, 96% of students reported having at least one engaged learning experience at some point during their undergraduate career, illustrating that engaged learning has almost fully permeated the undergraduate experience at U-M.

The Engaged Learning Census is developed and administered in partnership by the Office of the Provost, the Office of Budget and Planning, and the Office of the Registrar. For more information, write to engagedmichigan@umich.edu.
