Record giving supports students

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​CMU enrolls a diverse breadth of smart, driven students who’​ve shown they can be leaders if given the opportunity. Most are from Michigan; many intend to stay and help the state flourish.

Once here, students gain experiences in the classroom and beyond — building the knowledge, mindset and skills sought by employers. This requires active engagement from faculty, staff, alumni and friends, and we’​re proud to report fiscal year 2016 saw record-giving support of our students.
