A new service the Student Association of Michigan plans to provide to our members is an at-a-glance news hub called EduNews.  We want to keep our members informed of the most up-to-date information and news concerning higher education, but in a way which is accessible to students: in short, 30-second summaries of the most important-to-education news.

Student Association of Michigan


The Student Association of Michigan is a statewide advocacy organization whose mission is to represent, serve, and protect the collective interests of students in higher education in Michigan. 

The vision of the Student Association of Michigan is a political climate in Michigan in which student and higher education issues are at the forefront of the political agenda, and an organization whose size, strength, credibility, and political capital have the ability to actively influence such an agenda.
