M-Pathways Overview

The University's M-Pathways systems are maintained by Information and Technology Services. They include:

The Wolverine Access Gateway provides access to the M-Pathways systems as well as to several other resources that are widely used by U-M students, faculty, and staff.

These enterprise-wide systems are the result of the M-Pathways Project, which began in 1996 and was completed in 2001. The M-Pathways Project was launched in response to the University of Michigan executive officers' commitment to revamp business processes and administrative information systems, as mandated in the 1995 Strategic Data Plan (SDP). Its mission was to:

  • Improve processes and simplify policies in a way that makes interaction with the University easier for applicants, students, faculty, and staff
  • Share common information so that it is collected only once
  • Use new technology to speed the management and exchange of information.
