CIS Home


With the phased re-opening of campus, instructor access to our office is achievable through your contactless CMU ID card.  We encourage you to continue connecting with us virtually, when possible, and to make an appointment – with a staff member or by booking a makerspace studio – in advance to come on-site. By doing this, we will be able to provide your name to our Library partners to ensure that your ID card will allow you the Library access necessary to reach us. We look forward to seeing you again and continuing to work together!

Please continue contacting our office at 989-774-3615 for immediate assistance during normal business hours (8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday). You can also email us at CIS@cmich.edu, or browse this website for additional resources and information at any time.
