Care Hub white

The CARE Hub is dedicated to helping students connect to resources that will help them address food insecurity, mental health, safety, and housing whether through campus departments or community organizations. Student success begins with making sure that students have their basic needs met so that they can focus on their academics.


We foster an inclusive environment for wolverines to access food, housing, health and safety.


To remove barriers and create a place of belonging for all wolverines.
