Dear Friends,

The fall semester at the University of Michigan is in full swing, and our community of students and faculty are enthusiastic in pursuing opportunities to make an impact.

Our schools, colleges, institutes and academic programs are the foundation of my goals for advancing academic excellence and impact at the University of Michigan.

At my annual Leadership Breakfast earlier this month, I announced new initiatives that involve our full academic portfolio and align with my primary focus: to position U-M for perpetual excellence and public impact in everything we do.
