Character and Citizenship
Student Affairs is committed to guiding students to become responsible citizens and future leaders. Campus resources are available so students can lead successful and purposeful lives with civility and compassion. Every student is encouraged to grow academically, culturally, personally and spiritually. Through learning and discourse, WMU students become engaged citizens who act with high ethical standards beyond the classroom.
Student Conduct strives to foster student learning and personal development by creating an educationally purposeful, disciplined and caring community. Staff work collaboratively to forge a responsive and ethical academic community, balance individual student rights and responsibilities, and promote civility and effective citizenship.
Family Engagement serves as a contact point, liaison, and an information gateway for parents, guardians and family members of WMU students. Family members are welcome to join the WMU Family Connection network to receive up-to-date news and information about campus activities.
The Children’s Place Learning Center offers flexible childcare options for students who are balancing academics and family responsibilities. The learning center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and is the perfect choice for active student parents.
The Invisible Need Project is a multi-faceted initiative intended to serve students with unmet needs, while strengthening the culture of giving at WMU. The project engages the entire campus community, encouraging all faculty, staff, administrators and fellow students to come together to help students in need. Part of this effort involves the establishment of a campus food pantry. The WMU Food Pantry is located in the Office of Student Affairs in the Faunce Student Services Building.
