Dear Friends,

As we embark on the University of Michigan’s third century, I believe our future success will be defined in part by our ability to contribute to the solution of society’s most daunting problems by bringing to bear the full intellectual might of our academic breadth and depth.

Our aspirations for positive societal impact are deeply embedded in our mission as a public university – your university – to advance the good of society through research, education and service. We are also committed to affordability for all Michigan residents through initiatives like our Go Blue Guarantee and You Can Go Blue.

At my annual Leadership Breakfast earlier this month, I shared several announcements and updates that advance our two-centuries-old partnership with the people of Michigan.
