experience, so all students have the ability to succeed at the U.

We’ve got a big campus. That means it can be tough to navigate, and some parts may not be up to snuff. Our Infrastructure committee takes care of the basic physical framework of our campus to ensure every student has access to the infrastructure needed for to be successful. From disability resources to facilities and housing, they’re the ones who advocate for real, physical change.

We like our campus (and our earth), and we want it to stick around for awhile. Our Sustainability Committee looks for ways to make our campus more green and advocates for more environmentally friendly practices. This work not only helps to save our campus and our earth, but it can even find ways to save the university (and you) a few dollars along the way.

This committee is focused on classic “campus life programs” that improve the student experience outside the classroom. From Greek Life to the Rec Center, Campus Life knows there are many opportunities to perfect these critical non-classroom components—that’s why Campus Life is working to ensure all students have the college experience they’ve always wanted.

We want to make sure that every voice on campus is heard. No matter if these issues are within MSA or an obstacle that students are facing in at U of M  as a whole, this committee advocates for those that may be traditionally marginalized to create a community that is welcoming, considerate, and just.
