Michigan Wikipedians (or MWiki) is a Wikipedia student organization at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The group was the first student Wikipedia club in the United States.[1][2] The club is open to all students and faculty of the University of Michigan, as well as community members who are interested in Wikipedia.


The group was founded in August 2010 by student MichChemGSI as the Wikipedians of the University of Michigan. It was the first student Wikipedia club in the United States.[1] In Fall 2010 the group was visited by Frank Schulenburg, head of public outreach for the Wikimedia Foundation.[3]

In July 2011, the group changed its name to Michigan Wikipedians. The most recent in-person meeting of the Michigan Wikipedians was held on April 17, 2014.


The following is a list of events that were hosted by the Michigan Wikipedians.
