Faculty and Staff

  • Western Michigan University has partnered with YOU at College to offer YOU at Western, a unique and free web portal dedicated to student health, happiness and success. YOU emphasizes individual wellbeing and self-awareness in order to connect students to information, campus resources, peers and opportunities—whenever they need it.

YOU was created to mirror the lifestyle of college students. With expertise in three main areas — Succeed, Thrive and Matter — YOU helps students assess and improve their health, sense of purpose and life trajectory. YOU works best when student answers are honest and open. For that reason, all personal information that students provide on YOU is kept private.

Get to know YOU

Helping get students to a college experience that Succeeds, Thrives and Matters is as easy as:

  • Step 1: Visit YOU.wmich.edu. On the homepage, students can get a breakdown of the portal or just jump right in. 

  • Step 2: Students, faculty and staff can sign up using their university email account. As an extension of campus, YOU keeps all personal information that students provide on the YOU portal private.

  • Step 3: Discover. Once inside, students can start to customize their profile or take one of three Reality Checks. Both features are designed to cater content like tips, quizzes, videos and campus resources based on general needs and interests of individual students.

  • Step 4: Revisit. The YOU portal is intended to be used throughout a student’s college life. With changing content and dynamic tools, there’s a use for YOU from move-in day to landing that first job.
