University of Michigan 2021

Hi Friends, 

You can see Welcome to the University of Michigan, a place with deep traditions focused on creating brighter futures. We invite you to explore the diverse and vibrant community that makes us the home of Leaders & Best.



“At the heart of our commitment to the public good is our mission. It grounds all of our activities and aspirations. This year, it has been a beacon amid a sea of uncertainty — as it has guided our work to serve the public through education, research, service and patient care.”

🔄 Shining a light on faculty and staff

➤ Central Campus’ “Arriving Home” sculpture reflects the sun’s rays during a pre-COVID-19 fall day. The sculpture celebrates the dedication of U-M's faculty and staff — a tribute that is more than fitting as we look back on the accomplishments and challenges of 2020.

🔄 Campus arts initiative launched

➤ A comprehensive presidential arts initiative designed to “unleash imagination and creativity” at U-M was announced in fall 2019. A working group of arts leaders on campus is collaborating with all parts of the university to create the initiative. During a two-year startup phase, the initiative will focus on creating a roadmap by gathering ideas through broad community engagement and launching a series of pilot and demonstration projects.

🔄 U-M student-athletes match school-record 

Graduation Success Rate

The University of Michigan matched a school record for its Graduation Success Rate (GSR) as the National Collegiate Athletic Association released the 2019 annual GSR and Federal Graduation Rate (FGR) reports for all NCAA Division I institutions. U-M matched last year’s all-time record report of a four-year average GSR of 93 percent, which is 12 percentage points higher than it was in 2010.

🔄 U-M helps inform MI Safe Start plan

An online dashboard and other tools designed at U-M are helping local and state officials reopen the economy safely and gradually while allowing them to quickly identify and respond to potential coronavirus hot spots and outbreaks. Since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, U-M faculty have been providing expertise in modeling and forecasting data to inform the state of Michigan’s Safe Start Plan and working closely with industry leaders to evaluate risk factors for different working settings and develop risk-mitigating strategies to reopen those workplaces.

🔄 $10M gift fuels efforts to improve the world’s health

A new $10 million gift from Tadataka and Leslie D. Yamada will fund the U-M Center for Global Health Equity. The center will accelerate work by faculty, staff and students from across U-M’s schools, colleges and institutes on all three campuses to address inequities in health in the poorest nations, and in disadvantaged populations in middle-income countries.
