U-M Admissions statement on free speech and admissions

We value the rights of our incoming students to exercise their voices. We support our students who engage in lawful protests and use their voices to speak out against racism. Freedom of speech is a bedrock principle of our community and your admission to U-M is not jeopardized by your participation in lawful protests or exercising your constitutional rights.
