U-M CEW+
GETTING STARTED

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, emergency funding, or a research grant, a scholarship, or to attend one of our events or workshops, 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.
