Commuter Council

commuter council logo

Led and facilitated by members of the Commuter and Transfer Assistant Team, Commuter Council was designed to give new commuter students the opportunity to meet one another while also learning about leadership skills and event planning at the very beginning of their UM career. The council was established in the fall of 2021. The first cohort of the council designed and executed the very first Commuter Council event titled, Commuter Carnival. Applications to join Commuter Council are opened at the beginning of each semester. Council members meet weekly for on-going professional development and event planning.
