DACAmented/Undocumented

On September 5, 2017, it was announced that the federal government plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), which has caused concern for many across the country. This decision will have serious implications for many individuals, including our University of Michigan students, who are either directly or indirectly impacted by this policy. We in CAPS want to clearly say that DACA students are welcomed and valued members of our campus community, and we support them and their presence on this campus.


First Generation

First-gen students are typically defined as the first person in a family to attend a college or 4-year university (in the United States). First-gen students are diverse in terms of race, ethnicity, age, and socioeconomic status. In 2016, approximately 13% of students at University of Michigan were classified as first-gen.

Graduate Students

Graduate School at University of Michigan can be unique and present many great rewards and challenges. Often, the adjustment is different than a student coming into undergrad.  Many of the graduate programs are rated towards the top in the country and draw some of the best and brightest.  In addition to individual counseling free for all enrolled graduate students, CAPS offers many groups for graduate students.
