Who We Are: A Liaison Between EMU and Government

The Office of Government and Community Relations serves as the primary liaison between Eastern Michigan University and all levels of government, as well as the local and regional community.

Securing the resources that EMU requires to remain a leading public, comprehensive university requires the active support of our faculty, students, staff and alumni. From this website, you can remain up-to-date on the activities of our office and learn how you can help EMU secure the resources it needs to remain a world-class university.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about our office, or if you would like to become more involved in our work.
