Change How the World Thinks
We are not intellectually isolated. We are out in the world, engaging with people and interacting with the environment. It's how we teach and it's where we learn. It's how we meet real world challenges head on. And it's where we give back. We take great care to leave the world better than we found it and to leave a path forward for those who follow in our footsteps.

Sophia came to UM in 2019 to learn more about how to help those like her cousin who have specialized needs. She became the student director of MOSSAIC (Mentoring, Organization, and Social Support for Autism/All Inclusion on Campus) program and a member of the Global Leadership Initiative where she works toward a certificate in social inequalities and human rights. In 2022, Sophia was named a Newman Civic Fellow.
“We can make changes to be better and be more educated,” Sophia says. “And that is all I want to do.”
