Maize and Blue Cupboard Opening at Betsy Barbour

The regular hours of operation for the remainder of this semester will be Tuesday through Friday from 3pm to 7pm and Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Guests are welcome to come in at any time during those hours. Unlike previous food distribution days, food will not be given away on a first come, first served basis. Food will always be available at the Maize and Blue Cupboard, so students are welcome to come by at a time that works best for their schedule. A variety of items will be available in addition to food, such as toiletries and cookware. Guests will need to bring their M-Card in order to access the cupboard.

The Michigan Daily | 6th Annual SpeakABLE 2019

On Thursday evening, more than 60 University of Michigan students and faculty gathered in Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library to hear speakers in the 6th annual SpeakABLE event. The Services for Students with Disability Student Advisory Board organized SpeakABLE, a TED-style event promoting discussion on personal experiences and perspectives relating to disability.

LSA senior Felicity Harfield is an active member of the SSD/SAB and helped organize Thursday’s event. She said the objective of SpeakABLE is to provide a platform for people on campus to speak about disability in an environment that recognizes many different experiences with it.


National Alliance on Mental Illness | Research Opportunity

This study is being conducted by a licensed clinical social worker as part of their doctoral dissertation. The goal of this study is to learn more about the experiences of young people with mental health conditions during their first year at college. 

Study participants will complete a standardized survey. They will then conduct a 60-minute interview with the researcher over telephone or video chat. Participants will be kept anonymous and may choose their own pseudonyms. Participants who complete both the survey and the interview will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.

Participants may be eligible for this study if they are:

  • Aged 18-26
  • Currently enrolled in their first year of college (undergraduate university)
  • Have a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher
  • Have a clinical diagnosis of a mental health condition, including but not limited to depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia or other psychosis disorder
