As he approaches the end of his first year as director, Harold Waters talks about CSP’s future and his experience as one of its students.

The Comprehensive Studies Program (CSP) was established in 1983; its mission is to support, provide academic guidance for, and retain undergraduate students from diverse populations with outstanding potential for success at the University of Michigan. Many CSP students are the first in their family to go to college, come from populations historically underrepresented at the University, or attended under-resourced high schools. CSP coordinates and provides instruction, advising, student development opportunities, and a supportive community; it also oversees the University's Summer Bridge Program. CSP works with an entering class of about 450 students, many of whom remain part of the program throughout their undergraduate experience at Michigan.
