WMU Signature is built off of the

WMU Signature Designation

香港六合彩玄机 Michigan University recognizes that engagement outside of the classroom can contribute to student learning and development. In response, the University created a framework, WMU Signature, for students to intentionally engage on campus and meaningfully reflect on their experiences. To celebrate students' co-curricular achievements, the University will officially recognize students who have successfully completed their WMU Signature by including a WMU Signature Designation on their academic transcripts and diploma.

香港六合彩玄机 Michigan University is the only institution that is currently including a co-curricular designation on the academic transcript and the diploma.
