Student groups

Student groups at UMSI and across U-M provide opportunities that combine the UMSI mission of improving the world through technology and information with U-M's commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion.

If you're a member of a group that you would like to see here, please contact the UMSI DEI Committee at

UMSI-affiliated organizations

Multi-Ethnic Information eXchange (MIX) - MIX works to strengthen the social capital of minority students at UMSI and to serve as an academic, social and professional support system.



Queer STS Club - The Queer STS Group is an interdisciplinary space for scholars to investigate and collaborate on building queer approaches within the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS). We started as a monthly reading club in Fall 2015 and through our tenure have convened reading group meetings, brought in speakers, held writing workshops, and helped convene Queer STS themed sessions at regional and international conferences. We meet once a month (often on the first Friday) at Aut Bar in the Kerrytown neighborhood of Ann Arbor. For more information about meeting times or to get added to our mailing list, contact Jean Hardy.
