About MICU


The mission of the Michigan Independent Colleges and Universities is to plan, conduct, coordinate, supervise and finance activities that promote the well-being of the private, independent, non-profit institutions of higher education in Michigan.

We are Michigan Independent Colleges & Universities, representing Michigan’s not-for-profit independent colleges and universities. As the voice of Michigan's not-for-profit institutions of higher education, our goal is to increase awareness of the impact MICU members have on higher education in Michigan. With over 125,000 students at our institutions, Michigan independent colleges educate approximately 25 percent of all college students in the state.

MICU serves its members through government relations, public policy development and advocacy.
