Central Michigan University, with a main campus in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, and more than 60 locations across the U.S., is nationally recognized for academic excellence in more than 200 programs. Cutting edge research, new facilities, graduate programs and top faculty ensure an education that is one of the best in the state.
But what really sets Central apart from other schools is difficult to describe. We call it “the CMU experience.” It’s the fact that nearly half of all CMU freshmen participate in leadership training their first week on campus. Or that CMU recently won a national award for assisting victims of Hurricane Katrina. Or it’s that special professor who still remembers your name after 20 years. It’s a spirit that defies definition. That’s CMU.
Central Michigan University is one of the nation’s top 100 largest public higher education institutions and Michigan’s fourth largest public university.
Founded in 1892 and becoming a university in 1959, CMU is committed to providing students with a superior learning environment and global perspective to compete in an increasingly complex world.
With more than 20,000 students on its Mount Pleasant campus and another 7,000 enrolled online and at 60 locations in the United States, Canada and Mexico, CMU offers an impressive breadth of 200 academic programs, including nationally ranked programs in entrepreneurship, journalism, music, audiology, teacher education, psychology and physician assistant. CMU also is moving forward with establishing a college of medicine.
