On-Campus Workshops


As a STEP participant who is now attending CMU, you will participate in two on-campus workshops per semester. ​This fall, the Office of Student Success is offering a "Climb the Mountain" workshop series on some Tuesdays at 6pm. This series aims to guide students on their "climb to the top" and help them improve their ​CMU experience.

In addition to "Climb the Mountain" workshops, OSS will host "Conversations with Coaches," which provide an opportunity to participate in weekly group coaching sessions throughout the semester. Sessions are arranged based on interest and availability.​ Find more information about the Office of Student Success here.

"Climb the Mountain" topics may include:

  • ​Motivation and Personal Strengths
  • Study Skills, Note-Taking, and Effective Reading
  • Stress Reduction, Time Management, and Goal-Setting
  • Integrating Your Passions​ and Values into Your CMU Experience
  • Student Services and Getting Involved​
Check out the calendar below for workshop information, or click here to the Office of Student Success workshop/conversation schedule​ on​ their website. A PDF version of the semster schedule is also available.

*These workshops, as well as others offered at CMU, may ​count toward your 2 workshops per semester expectation (1st year at CMU only). Report back the title, date, time, and host information​ to STEP Academic Advisor, at MiCUP-STEP@cmich.edu to receive credit.
