U of M Faculty & Staff

Collaboration is one of the core values of Orientation & Transition Experiences. Building internal and external relationships strengthen the work we do with and for students. This page outlines the opportunities that exist for you to be involved with programs involving first-year students at a departmental level, as well as an individual level. We encourage you to check out these opportunities first hand and partner with us to ensure students have a successful transition to the U of M.
