Another component of helping to shape student-athletes into future leaders involves doing our best to prepare them for life after Michigan Athletics. As student-athletes grow during their time on campus, it is essential that they are also prepared to transition successfully into the next phase of their lives. It is our responsibility to develop champions who have a competitive advantage not only in the athletic arena, but in all they strive to achieve. We are committed to graduating student-athletes who are passionate and equipped with the skills necessary to navigate challenges and opportunities post-graduation and find success in their own personal and professional goals.
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: robust community engagement opportunities, academic success programming, career preparation and leadership training, international travel and health and wellness. These different initiatives 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 student-athlete represent the Michigan family, its principles, and its potential. Everywhere.
