The CEW Stories Project

What is the CEW Stories Project? The CEW Stories Project is dedicated to sharing stories and celebrating our relationships with faculty, staff and students at the University of Michigan and the rest of the CEW family. These stories represent the different ways in which CEW works in the University and general community. We hope you enjoy meeting some of the people whose lives have been touched by CEW.

Do you have a CEW story to share? Whether you came in for counseling, a critical difference or research grant, a scholarship, or to attend one of our programs, we hope you'll take a moment to let us know what that experience meant to you. You can tell your story by completing a series of questions on the "Share Your Story" page or, if you prefer, we'd love the opportunity to speak with you in person, either by phone or in a face-to-face conversation. Please contact us at contactcew@umich.edu to arrange an interview.
