Faculty and Staff Training

Faculty and Staff Training Modules

Faculty and staff at U-M are invited to workshops and training to help them best serve military-connected students.

We invite faculty and staff working at the University of Michigan to participate in online and/or scheduling face-to-face training with our staff.  After completion of one of the training modules, listed below, you can request our “Military-Connected Student Friendly” card to proudly display on your office wall, window or door to signify you have received training about military-connected students.
