Student Affairs

Taubman College Student Affairs helps current students navigate the college's academic degree requirements and the resources available throughout the college and university. We advise students from orientation to graduation on topics such as course selection, registration processes, and degree progression. We also support student wellness and involvement with workshops, communications, and referrals to U-M resources in addition to coordinating services with central support areas, and supporting faculty and administrative classroom scheduling.
