Community Engagement

The Office of Community and University Engagement



Officially launched in the fall of 2013, the Office of Community and University Engagement handles all requests for donations, autographs, auctions and appearances. With a focus on providing a diverse range of mutually beneficial community service events and opportunities throughout the community, we hope to introduce all 900-plus student-athletes to the many ways they can give back to their community.

Michigan Athletics is dedicated to being a strong community partner. Each year, our coaches and student-athletes volunteer their time to become involved with numerous non-profit organizations. In addition to time, we annually donate thousands of autographed items to fellow non-profit organizations to assist with their fundraising efforts.

Donations and Autographs

Whether through acts of service or offering memorabilia for charitable auctions, Michigan Athletics is committed to helping the community in diverse ways. Autographed balls signed by head coaches, jerseys worn by student-athletes, and unique team items are sure to help any fundraiser.

Speaking and Appearances

Looking for a coach to inspire your group with a rousing speech? How about a student-athlete that balances two full-time jobs speaking about time management or difficult choices? Our 900+ student-athletes and coaches can deliver the message you need to be successful. If you want a “Victor” at your next meeting, click here  to learn more and submit a request.
