Evolving to Meet Community Needs

As the world shifts and the global economy grows—as innovation accelerates the need for knowledge-based jobs—Eastern continues to help students shape their own futures. Through the strength of our programs and the success of our graduates, Eastern Michigan returns $42 to Michigan's economy for each $1 invested by the state, totaling $3.7 billion annually.

At the core of our mission is building pathways to success for students after college. EMU offers practical knowledge and applicable experience seeded into the curriculum to connect them to real-world issues they will face in their careers.

Our enduring strength has been our ability to evolve through the decades to meet the emerging needs of Michigan, the nation and the world. Constantly reshaping, retooling, reimagining—we keep ourselves at the forefront of education, embracing new directions and bringing our students the strongest educational opportunities.

One of Eastern's greatest strengths is the impact that we have on the communities we serve. The convergence of scholarship with real-world challenges is embedded in what we do. The University is committed to collaborative opportunities that leverage our academic mission, faculty and students, and campus facilities to meet community needs and challenges.
