Supporting Your Wolverine: Parent and Family Engagement

Quite simply, families are our partners. Together, we support your student’s intellectual and personal growth — and we're here to connect you with the information and resources you need.

Sending your Wolverine off to school isn't just a new experience for them, but a new experience for you too. As your student takes on adult responsibilities, your role will change, but your student still needs you. Students need you to support their growth, development, and independence, and to be a stable force in their ever-changing world. On occasion, they even need your advice—but they may or may not ask for it.

We know you have worked so hard to support your student in becoming a Wolverine. And we know that your student's success is not a coincidence. We believe in partnering with you to support your student and we consider you part of the UM-Dearborn family as well. There are a number of ways you can be involved, stay connected, and help your student navigate college life. Whatever your needs or interests are, we hope you find what you are looking for, but if you don't please feel free to reach out and ask us. logo logo is a leading online education resource making learning accessible for over 30 million students and educators a month.
