Welcome to Michigan Online

Michigan Online Learners,

I am pleased to welcome you to Michigan Online, your gateway to online learning opportunities from the University of Michigan.

Whether this is your first connection to the university or you’ve been walking our halls for years, Michigan Online is meant for you. In fact, you are the only reason Michigan Online matters.

The University of Michigan’s mission is to serve the people of the world. To develop leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future. To create and apply knowledge together.

In 200 years of living this purpose, we’ve built bridges and torn down walls to bring more people and ideas into this public research university. Today’s digital education means our community and its impact can grow.

In a world of near-limitless access to knowledge, and learning tools that are improving every day, we have decided that increasing access to learning opportunities is not enough. To create a peaceful, equitable, and empowered society, Michigan Online must provide opportunities to learn together.

In Michigan Online we see the potential to create a compassionate public square where creativity, comprehensive academic excellence, and our aspirations for societal impact all come together for individuals prepared to adopt a learning lifestyle and for communities who hope to learn and shape the world together.

Today, we provide access to more than 130 online learning experiences, including courses and series, a range of credit-eligible programs, and online learning events called Teach-Outs. This is only the beginning.

We need you in order for Michigan Online to reach its potential. Please engage with our growing global community and tell us why you’re #HereToLearn.

Go Blue!
