Mentorship is open to all first-year students. The program is one of the many Michigan Learning Communities available to students on campus. These programs help to make the University a smaller place by building relationships between students, faculty and staff. Throughout the fall semester Mentorship groups participate in a variety of activities, both academic and social, that work towards supporting and encouraging each first-year student.

Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP): Creates research partnerships between first- and second-year students and UM faculty. All schools and colleges are active participants in UROP, providing a wealth of research topics from which students can choose. The program continues to grow, offering more first and second year students the opportunity to be part of an exciting research community.
