U-M President Mark Schlissel, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Detroit Free Press editor Stephen Henderson joined U-M and community leaders May 3 for a daylong exploration and presentation of research and learning practices taking place in and with Detroit.

The event, um3detroit, recognized the partnerships of all three U-M campuses with the city. It featured numerous opportunities to hear and share stories about Detroit-oriented research, teaching and learning, and discuss additional opportunities to build a community of scholarship, research and education.

The 3 in the name references not only the involvement of the three campuses, but the U-M’s Third Century Initiative, a program that invested $25 million to encourage faculty and staff to transform learning for the university’s next century, and some of whose projects provide engaged learning in Detroit.
