Learner centered. Discovery driven. Globally engaged.

We're delighted that you have chosen to explore the opportunities at Western Michigan University. WMU is among the nation's top public research universities while honoring our commitment to retaining WMU's hallmark small college feel. With a diverse array of academic program choices, including aviation, jazz studies, engineering, education, biology, nursing, and business, to name only a few, our students know their WMU credentials will be highly regarded by employers and the nation's top graduate schools alike. WMU’s main campus, located in the culturally rich city of Kalamazoo, offers thousands of opportunities for students to grow socially, including multi-seasonal recreation, entertainment, learning communities, volunteering, and professional development.

Living in the Broncos Community

WMU cultivates a diverse, inclusive, and healthy community.

WMU's Division of Student Affairs engages students in learning and personal growth in and out of the classroom and helps guide the development of students into responsible citizens and future leaders. It also supports and challenges students by sponsoring more than 360 student organizations, intramural and club sports, and recreation and fitness classes, each of which helps students engage in campus life and to become active members of the WMU community. All of the programs and services within the division are intentionally designed to support the academic mission of the University, and to create and sustain optimal learning environments.  An example of another one of our student services departments which supports the academic mission of the University is our Center for Academic Support Programs. This center and its programs are designed to enhance teaching and promote student learning  through collaborative, effective research-based programs that include supplemental instruction, content tutoring, college success seminars, effective reading seminars, advising services for undeclared majors, and one-to-one writing instruction with a writing consultant.
