First Year Experience

University of Michigan students tell us that making friends and finding community is one of the most rewarding and important aspects of their first year on campus. 

The Community Matters Cohort Program provides a space for undergraduate students to meet people also looking to meet people. Program participants are matched with a pair of upperclassmen facilitators and a small group of other students who are interested in finding community. This community is designed to support students navigate community building in multiple environments. Students will connect through cohort social events and conversations about cultivating support networks during our time at U-M. 

The Community Matters Cohort Program will be available in Fall 2021. You can let us know now if you're interested in being a part of a cohort!
