Invitation to Attend Upcoming Town Halls for the University's Reaccreditation

Learn more about U-M’s upcoming university-wide reaccreditation with the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and share your thoughts about the materials that the University is preparing for this process.

U-M’s accreditation team will be hosting town hall events in March to gather further input on the University’s draft response to the HLC.

In addition to staff, we encourage students and student advisory board members to attend these meetings as well. 


Disability Day of Mourning

MARCH 1, 2019 
12:00 P.M. 
HATCHER GALLERY

Every year on March 1st, the disability community comes together to remember the victims of filicide - people with disabilities murdered by their family members. Vigils are held on the Day of Mourning in cities around the world. When we say "filicide," we are talking about a pattern of violence that starts when a parent or caregiver murders their child or adult relative with a disability and continues in how these murders are reported, discussed, justified, excused, and replicated. 

Please join Disability Culture at U-M as we remember hundreds of lives taken.
