Wikipedians of the University of Michigan is a Wikipedia student club affiliated with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The group was the first student Wikipedia club in the United States.[1]


The purpose of the organization is to transform Wikipedia readers to Wikipedia editors. By equipping students with the necessary skills to navigate Wikipedia's editing code, students can in turn transfer the knowledge gained in the classroom to increase the information offered to the world through Wikipedia. In addition, our members who go abroad, can teach those they meet abroad to edit Wikipedia, broadening the scope of editors even more. This organization is a service organization and we aim to disseminate knowledge to the global community.
