Campus Resources

Spectrum Center

The Spectrum Center provides a comprehensive range of education, information, and advocacy services working to create and maintain an open, safe, and inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and similarly-identified students, faculty, and staff, their families and friends, and the campus community at large.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is the gateway to the people and programs that support and advance diversity at the University of Michigan and beyond.

Expect Respect

Expect Respect is an educational initiative aimed at supporting a campus climate in which all persons are treated with civility. Community members work together to strengthen the framework of support services for those who have experienced hate crimes or bias incidents.

Intergroup Relations

IGR is a social justice education program that works to promote understanding of intergroup relations inside and outside of the classroom. Multidisciplinary courses offered by IGR are distinguished by their experiential focus, teaching philosophy, and incorporation of dialogical models of communication.

ECRT provides programs and services for faculty, staff, and students to support diversity, inclusiveness, equal access, equitable treatment, and cultural understanding and competency.
