About CMU

Founded in 1892, Central Michigan University has evolved into a major, national university with nearly 27,000 students, approximately 50 remote locations in the U.S. and Canada, top-ranked online programs, and nearly 215,000 alumni worldwide.
CMU is a $480-million enterprise offering more than 200 academic programs at the undergraduate, master’s, specialist and doctoral levels.

The fourth-largest university in Michigan began with the mission of addressing a demand for teachers prepared and qualified to lead classrooms and educate future generations.
