The Central Michigan Chippewas are the intercollegiate athletic teams that represent Central Michigan University (CMU), located in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. The school fields sixteen men's and women's intercollegiate teams that compete at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I level. The school's athletics programs are affiliated with the NCAA and compete in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) with the exception of women's lacrosse, which competes in the Southern Conference. The school colors are maroon and gold, and the school, and its students and alumni are referred to as Chippewas, which is sometimes shortened to Chips.

The nickname is used with the consent of the nearby Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe. The university was placed on the NCAA's list of schools with "hostile or abusive" nicknames in August 2005, but appealed the decision, with the support of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Nation. On September 2, 2005 the university announced that their appeal of the decision had been upheld.
