Another component of helping to shape student-athletes into future leaders involves doing our best to prepare them for life after Michigan Athletics. Throughout their time on campus, student-athletes are transformed into Michigan Wolverines and this will forever be part of their identity. After graduation, we want our student athletes to carry that passion into their chosen field of study or profession while also being equipped with the capacities and self-awareness necessary to excel. In order to help current student-athletes successfully transition to life post-graduation, we have identified a comprehensive approach that requires significant investment and will include the following components: career preparation, student-athlete wellness (nutrition guidance, mental fitness counseling, and conflict resolution skill building), leadership and professional development, and community engagement training. This initiative will assist Michigan student-athletes as they transition from college scholars and sports team members toward emerging global leaders. We strive to have each and every athlete represent the Michigan Family, its principles, and its potential. Everywhere.
