Engaged Michigan is a partnership between the Office of the Provost and Michigan News.

The Provost has charged the Vice Provost for Engaged Learning with developing and encouraging interdisciplinary programs and collaborations as well as high-impact, engaged, action-based student learning in all its forms. The team facilitates connections and guides new initiatives, develops resources, and serves as a key point of contact for anyone interested in engaged learning and scholarship at U-M.

Michigan News develops features, stories, and other content for Engaged Michigan. The team works closely with students, faculty, staff, administrators, and community members to showcase a wide-range of interdisciplinary and engaged initiatives on and off campus.
