Dearborn Support


Dearborn Support advances student success by:

  • Assisting students as they navigate life’s obstacles. 
  • Connecting students with resources on and off campus.
  • Helping to ensure student basic needs are met. 

We are here for you.

At UM-Dearborn, we are committed to your success. Our team is here to help you as you navigate critical incidents--or difficult times if/when you have an unexpected emergency such as becoming ill (with or without COVID), losing a loved one, or experiencing an accident. We advocate on your behalf to professors and help you adjust when you are ready to return. Additionally, we help students connect to basic needs through our Student Food Pantry, and make referrals to many other support services on campus and in the community. This help is available to all students at any time. Do not hesitate to call or email us! We're here for YOU!

Should you need any support or assistance, you are strongly encouraged to take one of the following actions:

  • Email: 
  • Call: 313-593-5056 (please leave a voicemail)
  • Stop by: Renick University Center, Suite 2130 A


We strive to ensure every student has equitable access to essential resources in order to be a thriving and successful UM-Dearborn student and graduate. Below is a list of just some of the types of services we provide. 

Sometimes, the best way to seek support is to come and see us. Conversations together help our team offer a personalized approach for triaging and navigating your next steps. Our office is located next to the Student Food Pantry in the University Center, Suite 2130 A. To make an in-person or virtual appointment, please email
