Frequently Asked Questions

01

COVID-19: Will SEE Camp still be offered this summer?

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Michigan Center for Engineering Diversity and Outreach (CEDO) has canceled all in-person K-12 programs for this summer in an effort to put everyone’s health, safety, and well-being first. Unfortunately, this cancellation does include SEE Camp. For more information, please see CEDO's website here.

 

We understand that this announcement is disappointing, and we appreciate all of the hard work that was put into this year's applications. If you are still eligible (current freshman and sophomores), we encourage you to apply again for next year's camp.

Please reach out to us at swe.seecamp@umich.edu with any questions.
