Dual Career Program

Central Michigan University's commitment to recruiting, hiring, and promoting well qualified and diverse faculty and staff members includes supporting talented couples in their search for meaningful employment at the university and in the surrounding Mount Pleasant community.

Services for spouses/partners are available throughout the recruitment process and for up to a year after a new employee begins working at CMU. This program does not guarantee employment of a new employee's spouse/partner. The university does not create new positions to accommodate this program.
