About CMU

Founded 125 years ago, Central Michigan University is a major, national university with 26,000 students, more than 30 remote locations in the U.S. and Canada, and 225,000 alumni worldwide.

CMU offers more than 200 academic programs at the undergraduate, master’s, specialist and doctoral levels. Academic excellence is found in programs considered among the best in the nation, such as engineering, information systems, neuroscience, physician assistant, physical therapy, sales, logistics, fashion merchandising and design, advertising, marketing, public relations, and broadcasting. Central has been a pioneer in extended learning for nearly 50 years, and its online programs for undergraduates and the military, as well as its online MBA and online graduate education for teachers and school leaders, are nationally ranked.

Central Michigan University expands its academics with immersive, hands-on opportunities such as research, volunteering, study abroad, internships and leadership experiences.

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 through many newer programs, including our College of Medicine, which in May 2017 graduated its first class of doctors dedicated to serving medically underserved communities.

Employees have access to fitness facilities and a nationally recognized wellness program as well as health care and benefits that exceed regional, state and national norms.
