Dear Friends,

Societal impact is a quintessential strength of the University of Michigan, and I am proud that the work and talents of our professors, staff and students are making a positive difference throughout our state. Communities in every part of Michigan enjoy unique economic, intellectual, cultural and health benefits from U-M’s work.

I’ve previously discussed the advantages of U-M’s leadership as the nation’s most productive research university, but a new analysis details how our research activities contribute millions of dollars to local businesses.
