“We share something precious at Eastern Michigan, and that’s a love for our students. We all really care. Most universities say that, but I believe we demonstrate it, over and over.”


President James Smith

At Eastern Michigan University, our mission is to supply one thing to every student: success.

Success that can only come from a top-notch education. Success that’s inspired by a culture of inclusion. Success that happens personally, blossoms professionally, and lasts a lifetime. Today, more than ever, your support enables success. 

The future vision we have for our university demands that we give our students every tool they need to become engineers, teachers, scientists, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, and leaders. It asks that we continue to put our students first. And it implores us to open doors to success, well beyond the boundaries of campus.

We have a fantastic vision for the future of EMU. One that includes supporting each student’s success, advancing our programs of distinction, and helping our students excel beyond the classroom.

Support Each Student’s Success

Eastern wants to give students the support they need — financial, academic, and social — to thrive here. Your support will create more academic and need-based scholarships, and strengthen academic support programs.

Advance EMU’s Programs of Distinction

Investment in EMU’s standout programs and older facilities will strengthen EMU for decades to come. Your support will help provide for faculty research, experiential learning opportunities for students, and modern, upgraded spaces.

Help Students Excel Beyond the Classroom

Knowledge becomes more meaningful when it is applied. Your support will give faculty resources for experiential learning projects, create scholarships for high-need students, and expand study abroad opportunities and scholarships.

With all of the challenges our world has experienced this past year, never before has the remarkable work of our faculty, staff, students, and community partners been more important. And never before have we been more ready.

So give your support. Give to help our vision become reality. And give rise to the success of every student.
