MichiganEARTH Offers Remote Learning Opportunities
EARTH Courses Spring and Summer Half-Terms The spring and summer of 2020 will continue to be an interesting and challenging time in Michigan and the world. The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences is actively adjusting to new modes of teaching, research, and communication. We recognize the disruption that these changes have caused for our students, and we are modifying and expanding our spring and summer course offerings to serve the needs of our majors and minors, and of the Michigan community.
Virtual Commencement Events-in the Department and the University
Graduation won’t be in the Big House this spring, but it’s still a big moment for thousands of graduating seniors. The Department, College, and University have joined together to commemorate the dedication, hard work, and yes, fun that is a UM degree. We list here some of the virtual commencement events available and urge you to participate in the online activities.
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences has produced a video message, slide show, and commencement poster for you to download.
The North University Building is now closed. Only authorized critical staff are allowed to enter.

Earth Camp aims to bring diversity to environmental sciences
Every summer for three years in a row, a diverse group of Michigan high school students spends a week exploring nature and learning about the environment through the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences’ Earth Camp. The camp hopes to spark interest among a new generation to enter the field.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences needs your support.
