The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) fosters a culture where every member of the community feels values, supported and inspired to achieve individual and common goals with an uncommon will.
The You Belong Here initiative is supported by the CANR and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI).
Faculty, staff and students all play an important role in creating a sense of belonging, an open community and a safe space for all voices.

MENTORING THE FUTURE
Leading the Way
The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, through several different programs, works to mentor beginning faculty, young alumni and students. In this video, you’ll meet a student, Ty’Carria, who is studying fisheries and wildlife; and Alexis Horton, who works with the Department of Natural Resources. Both women are benefitting from mentorship opportunities provided through the college’s Multicultural Apprenticeship Program, a summer program for high school students in Michigan.LEARN MORE
