  • Leadership Opportunities

    Are you interested in taking a more active role in the chapter without the commitment of an officer role? Interested in getting involved in a specific project or committee? Check out our newly reworked Leadership Form to learn about more opportunities. These opportunities are great, lower-commitment ways to get more involved and lead an event or project that you are passionate about. Feel free to reach out with any questions.

    Also, check out the Electee Team Lead interest form if you are interested in playing a big role in the electing process this semester.

    All of these roles will count a a leadership credit, which is an integral part of achieving DA/PA status.

Upcoming Events

  • NROTC Group Tutoring (March 4, March 6)

    The Navy Reserve Officers' Training Corps (NROTC) at the University of Michigan has academic standards and is looking for tutors to assist their students, with a focus on introductory Math and Physics courses:

    MATH 115/116

    PHYSICS 140/240

    You will report to the NROTC wardroom (CHEM 1018), located on the west side of the Chemistry building. The fastest way to find it is to use the entrance nearest to the Kinesiology building and immediately turn right. Once you arrive, check in with Collin Wys, the NROTC Academics Officer, who will make sure you get credit for tutoring.

    Any questions can be directed towards Hunter Muench, the TBP Campus Outreach Officer (tbp.campusoutreach@umich.edu, or find me on Slack) or Collin Wys, the NROTC Academics Officer (cwys@emich.edu).
