Inclusive spaces

Room for all

The way we choose to use our space says a lot about our priorities.

Through virtual events and inclusive spaces online and on campus, we’re committed to giving members of our community places to come together and feel safe, included and supported.

On-campus inclusive spaces

Wellness Zone

The Wellness Zone located in Pierpont Commons offers a variety of ways to unwind and de-stress, such as massage chairs, SAD light therapy, meditation and yoga tools, and other wellness resources.

Reflection rooms

Reflection rooms offer space for meditation, prayer and/or time in quiet reflection. U-M provides three reflection rooms on North Campus – in Pierpont Commons, the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science building and the North Campus Research Complex. University-wide there are 15 such spaces available.

Lactation rooms

The University is home to 54 lactation and personal care rooms, including several on North Campus. They provide private and comfortable space for nursing mothers.

Gender inclusive restrooms

The map below outlines the locations of 93 unisex restrooms around U-M, which are inclusive to individuals regardless of gender identity or presentation.

NEED HELP?

Digital accessibility

We strive to ensure that all of our websites and other digital products can be used by anyone, regardless of ability. Sites are periodically reviewed for compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA standard. We correct errors when we find them, but if you notice an issue with one of our websites, please let us know at engin-web@umich.edu.

Climate concerns and support

A campus climate concern can include actions that discriminate, stereotype, exclude, harass or harm anyone in our community based on their identity (such as race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, or religion). Reports of campus climate concerns by U-M students, faculty and staff are addressed by the Campus Climate Support staff. 

Reporting misconduct

If you encounter inappropriate behavior or misconduct, there are resources and contacts available for you. The Office for Institutional Equity (OIE) is the administrative office for determining whether University policies or procedures regarding discrimination or discriminatory harassment have been followed. You may contact OIE anonymously using this form. Note that “Individuals with Reporting Obligations” (IROs) are required to report.

DEI & wellness events

There are many events happening in the College related to issues of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) or wellness. Plus, keep an eye on University-wide events for even more ways to get and stay engaged.
