The Work/Life Resource Center is a starting point for the University of Michigan community to learn about resources and tools to promote work/life balance: child care and elder care resources, educational programs, and consultation on flexible scheduling.
A newer program is our U-M Family Helpers -- a listing of U-M students and U-M benefits-eligible retirees who are available for child/elder care, yard work, tutoring, housekeeping, pet/house sitting, and more!
If you are a current U-M affiliate — full- or part-time faculty, staff or student — we can help guide you to resources and programs including:
- PARENTING & LACTATION INFORMATION
- CHILD CARE & KIDS KARE AT HOME
- ELDER CARE
- FLEXIBLE WORK ARRANGEMENTS
- U-M FAMILY HELPERS
- EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS & ANNUAL WORK/LIFE CONFERENCE
