PRESENTATIONS

Since 1990, the Michigan Student Study has been presented at nearly 100 fora: national conventions of higher education organizations, various colleges and universities, and at academic and student affairs units as well as faculty, staff and student organizations at the University of Michigan campus. We have greatly valued the many opportunities we have had to share our work and the impact that it has had on our understanding of campus diversity.

Over the years, we have valued the feedback received from various segments of the campus community. This longitudinal approach at a single institutional has been shared with our colleagues in the higher education community, and various aspects of the Michigan Student Study have been emulated at other institutions that seek to have a better understanding of the impact of campus diversity on their students.

We have provided a sampling of the various presentations given over the years. Again, we are most appreciative of the support that we have received from the Ford Foundation, which has allowed us to make the Michigan Student Study and the survey instruments available to the higher education community.
