A safe campus for all women.
An empowering environment where women embrace their potential and affect change.
A system of support that accelerates students’ careers and lives of impact.

UM provides fertile ground for this work. In fact, we’ve already begun. The S.E.A. Change Initiative brings new air and light to important campus programs that support all women while advancing gender equity.

We will continue to cultivate in students and in ourselves a commitment to powering a sea change.
