About the Wolverine Caucus

Wolverine Caucus members are U-M alumni working in and around State of Michigan government, including legislators, lobbyists, staff, and advisors who meet with U-M experts on timely, relevant public policy subjects during the legislative session.

Our mission is to provide diverse forums at which University of Michigan friends can meet one another, enjoy fellowship, exchange views and learn from the world-class talents of U-M faculty and administrators.

The Caucus is informal: no dues, no elections, no organization chart. Please join us at a Wolverine Caucus event soon! A delicious lunch is provided, prepared with locally grown produce. Vegetarian meals are available.
