At CEW+ we work to break down barriers and increase access through funding. We offer opportunities for scholarships, emergency grants, sponsorships, and more for a range of situations and life circumstances.

Career & Education Counseling

Our professionally trained and experienced counselors work within a developmental framework to help individuals consider their options, make informed choices, and both define and resolve problems, while focusing on issues of achieving their career goals and balance between, school, work, and family.

Typical counseling services for faculty may include discussions around:

  • Negotiation strategies
  • Conflict resolution
  • Goal setting
  • Resume/cover letter/application review

Advocacy Initiatives

Through a variety of initiatives, task forces, groups, and organizations, we lift up and make space for diverse voices.

Women of Color in the Academy Project

WOCAP is a faculty network that supports scholarship focused on understanding the experiences of women of color in the academy and advocacy work to address the challenges and issues faced uniquely by women of color in the academy.

Twink Frey Visiting Social Activist Program

This program was created to bring social activists who work on gender equity issues to CEW+. Each visit is intended to give the selected activist time for reflection, research, and/or planning related to their area of activism.

Supporting the Academic Excellence of Student Caregivers

Did you know that 26% of all college students nationwide are raising children? U-M’s own survey data found a comparable percentage of students with children, and student caregivers, mostly among our graduate and professional student populations.

CEW+ Research

CEW+’s publications include research reports policy and advocacy papers, and resources for department chairs. The work of CEW+ researchers is supplemented by the research publications of our Visiting Scholars. All publications listed are downloadable.
