MICHIGAN IMPACT

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

Dear Friends,

Great research universities attract and support talented individuals who give birth to new ideas and discoveries that help drive our state and local economies. The University of Michigan is proud to support innovation and entrepreneurial activity at all levels among our students.

This edition of Michigan Impact showcases our Made at Michigan initiative to promote the work of our student entrepreneurs. U-M students launched more than 300 ventures this past year alone. They invent life-saving technologies, start companies that create jobs, and launch nonprofits that make lives better in our neighborhoods.

I am working to foster entrepreneurship and other experiential aspects of the Michigan education, because I am convinced that they are essential to our mission of public impact. They also prepare our graduates to lead through creativity and innovation, in any career they decide to pursue.
