ANN ARBOR – This morning, Twitter user and PhD candidate at University of Michigan Leah Abrams tweeted a poll asking which abbreviation for the university was correct: UM, U-M or Umich?
The university's official account responded, saying the official university style guide uses U-M, but UM can also be used in some circumstances, like when writing UM-Dearborn.
See the correspondence below:
Well Leah, the university style guide champions U-M.— University of Michigan (@UMich) April 1, 2019
However, there are a number of instances where you might shift the position of the hyphen i.e. UM-Flint, UM-Dearborn, etc.

Thanks for the clarification. Looks like we've got to win over the "Umich" team that's leading in the poll!— Leah Abrams (@LeahRAbrams) April 1, 2019
We're glad that's been cleared up.
