Our Purpose

At the University of Michigan we believe a peaceful, equitable and empowered society is dependent on learners everywhere adopting a learning lifestyle. To that end, a significant part of our institution’s mission is to develop leaders and citizens who challenge the present and enrich the future.

Why We Exist

Michigan Online exists to broaden the impact of this mission by making our elite public research university’s learning experiences accessible at scale. We are rapidly growing to serve our expanding global U-M community, enabling people to connect, engage and take control of their life-long learning journeys.

What We Do

Michigan Online connects our global community of learners and help people decide which type of learning experience meets their needs, while also enabling efficient navigation of our extensive portfolio U-M learning opportunities hosted via online learning platforms such as Coursera and edX.

Most importantly, Michigan Online is growing and developing everyday. We invite learners to provide valuable feedback to influence the future of learning innovation.
