About Us

Expect Respect is a unique partnership among students, faculty and staff with intentional collaboration and campus unity around our values.

Expect Respect upholds diversity, equity, and inclusion and honors all voices. It is an educational initiative aimed at supporting a campus climate in which all persons are treated with civility and respect while being their authentic selves.

How students experience their campus environment influences learning and growth. Having a positive campus climate can shape our institution into a community with sense of belonging and a sense of home. A healthy campus climate is safe and inclusive, and offers everyone a chance to succeed.

Community members from across campus work together to strengthen and create transformational prevention efforts. Join us to maintain a campus climate at University of Michigan where everyone can thrive!
