The law of higher education in Michigan is complex and multi-faceted. Michigan’s state public universities enjoy unique constitutional status and powers. Michigan community colleges may be established under state or federal laws. Michigan’s private higher education institutions may be residential or commuter, religious or sectarian, or liberal arts, science, business, or research-focused. These variables affect each higher education institution’s authority, governance, legal relationships, and obligations.

Our higher education attorneys have significant experience advising Michigan’s colleges, universities, and community colleges in a broad range of legal matters.
