Equity is a precondition for excellence. To support U-M's mission of serving the people of Michigan and the world, CSP strives to minimize or eliminate barriers to inclusive and equitable education by providing the necessary resources and services to prioritize the recruitment and support of U-M’s most talented and vulnerable students. We don't know where the next cutting-edge discovery or idea will come from, so in CSP we make providing individualized and accessible support to all students our priority.
By giving to CSP, you are providing critical support and encouragement to the next generation of great thinkers and leaders.
Your Gifts at Work
“The community—students, staff, everyone—works together to understand the needs of students. Whether it’s planning a social event or providing resources for scholarships, that community-building is so important, and it definitely helped me." (Rhianna Womack, LSA ’23)
“I appreciate and acknowledge the amount of intention CSP brings to supporting students. [CSP] has done an amazing job of encapsulating everyone. No matter what experience they bring, their identity, their background, they provide guidance and help push students in the right direction.” (Mateo Brown, LSA ’24)
“I would not have graduated from the University of Michigan without Summer Bridge. It just really gave me a lot of opportunities that I didn’t have in high school, and it’s kind of allowed me to kind of spread out my wings and establish a foundation here.” (Esau Delgado, LSA ’21, current MSW student)
