Honor the past.
Central Michigan University opened its doors to address a pressing demand for quality schooling for Michigan's future educators. Our founders led the way in meeting that need, setting the standard for decades to come. Through the years, CMU hasn't just built leaders. Leaders have built CMU.
After 125 years, we continue to be leaders in finding solutions to community and global needs. Our faculty and students are working side by side inspiring positive change through advanced research, new technologies and the knowledge of discovery. We aren't just adapting to the evolving world, we're shaping it.
