TACTICAL Application Process

How to Apply

Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.  We encourage applicants to submit as soon as possible. We have selected our full cohort starting July 2018.  We are now accepting applications for the 2019 cohort which will start July 2019. 

We actively seek a diverse cohort as we believe this will make TACTICAL more effective. The University of Michigan, as an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, complies with all applicable federal and state laws regarding nondiscrimination and affirmative action. The University of Michigan is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all persons and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, religion, height, weight, or Veteran status in employment, educational programs and activities, and admissions.
