Black History Month 2023 - Rooting for Everybody Black

This year, Black History Month (BHM) is an intentional partnership between The Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (MESA) and student organizations, Support for Incoming Black Students (S.I.B.S.) and the Black Student Union (BSU). Together, we are working together with a committee of 11 to make Black History Month a memorable experience for students, staff and faculty at the University of Michigan. Please stay tuned for updates and details.

2023 MLK Symposium

On Monday, January 16, in honor and celebration of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a number of events took place for members of our community.

The keynote address included a dynamic mix of local and national speakers and performances, and we are excited to host the event in person for the first time since 2020. If you were not able to watch the address in-person or as a livestream video, you can access the recording here.

Veterans Week Activities

The University of Michigan Veteran and Military Services department is proud to present a variety of Veterans Week activities from November 7th through 11th. This annual week of programming offers opportunities for the campus community to engage in activities that celebrate veterans and educate people about the experiences of those who have served our country.

Blood Battle

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Blood Battle versus Ohio State! From October 27th to November 23rd there will be blood drives across campus where you can not only help save lives but we can beat the Buckeyes for the most pints donated. Blood shortages are a big issue - only 37% of the U.S. population is able to donate blood and of that small percentage, only 10% do so annually. An hour of your time can save up to three lives.
