Faculty and Staff Immigration Advisory Council

At the U-M International Center, we regularly seek feedback from the University of Michigan community to improve our services. One of the ways we do this is through advisory groups.For information about U-M International Center advisory groups, please contact us at 734.764.9310 or icenter@umich.edu.

  • Academic Human Resources
  • Human Resources and Affirmative Action
