MICHIGAN IMPACT

blank
Mark S. Schlissel, M.D., Ph.D.

Dear Friends,

Meeting so many members of the University of Michigan community during my first few months has given me the opportunity to learn about the remarkable contributions they are making to our state. Several events with alumni have been wonderful opportunities to hear their uniquely Michigan stories.

I have met business owners who are hiring workers and helping to lead Michigan’s economic recovery, elected leaders who are making our state’s cities and towns great places to live, and students who dream of using their U-M degrees to make a difference in their home communities. I have also spoken with researchers who have invented new products and launched startup companies through work that began right here on our campus. And I have seen first-hand the remarkable health care that is a hallmark of our Health System.

These moments are at the heart of the amazing impact of our university. Supported by a research budget that is the largest of any public university, our world-class professors, innovative graduates and nearly 60,000 students help people live better lives, through health, social equity and economic progress.

Part of my job will be to further strengthen that work, and in the coming months I plan to share more updates of our achievements in Michigan Impact. I want U-M to be known for research that stimulates economic growth, for creative works that enrich our culture, and for experiential learning that connects students to communities.

Thank you for making me feel so welcome, and I appreciate your support of our university and our students.


Sincerely,
Signature
Mark Schlissel, M.D., Ph.D.
President
