About CMU

Founded in 1892, Central Michigan University has evolved into a major, national university with nearly 27,000 students, approximately 50 remote locations in the U.S. and Canada, top-ranked online programs, and nearly 215,000 alumni worldwide.
CMU is a $480-million enterprise offering more than 200 academic programs at the undergraduate, master’s, specialist and doctoral levels. Academic excellence is found in programs that have been ranked among the best in the nation, such as neuroscience, sales, logistics, fashion merchandising and design, and online programs for undergraduates as well as the online MBA and online graduate education for teachers and school leaders.
Central Michigan University complements its excellent academics with experiences outside the classroom – hands-on opportunities that enable students to find their potential and develop their ability to contribute to the world around them.
The fourth-largest university in Michigan began with the mission of addressing a demand for teachers prepared and qualified to lead classrooms and educate future generations. That commitment to fulfilling unmet needs continues today in America’s 137th College of Medicine, which in 2017 will graduate its first class of doctors dedicated to medically underserved communities.
Employees have access to state-of-the-art fitness facilities and a nationally recognized wellness program as well as health care and benefits that exceed national norms for many industries.
