Web site highlights programs that help U-M community
In recognition that members of the campus community may need extra help in these tough economic times, a number of programs and resources have been established in recent months.
Information on these and a number of existing resources helpful to faculty, staff and students facing financial hardship now can be found together on a new Web site.
From an Emergency Hardship Program that provides assistance for staff and faculty members and various student emergency funds, to foreclosure assistance from legal experts and numerous job search services, U-M is leveraging its top experts to provide resources that can help members of the community weather the economic crisis.
Information available on the site, www.vpcomm.umich.edu/pa/key/financial3.html, focuses on financial aid, services for non-traditional students, retirement investing and career development.
