Student life is an important and dynamic component of an active university experience. Western Michigan University offers many student organizations, clubs and recreational activities to help students engage in campus life, and to become active members of the WMU community. Each student is encouraged to grow both academically and personally, and to become participating university members. Visit the Student Affairs web page to learn more about the full range of personal enrichment opportunities.
Dr. Regena Nelson, chair of the Department of Teaching, Learning and Educational Studies and Kathy Gilbert, manager of WMU’s Children’s Place Learning Center, have been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The grant funds will go toward a project titled College Assistance for Parenting and Education (CAPE) and will help provide reduced-rate child care tuition at Children's Place Learning Center, academic and social support. This project specifically address the needs and barriers most often identified by student parents: affordable child care, social and academic support structures.
