Elliott Initiative

The Elliott Initiative, launched in 2010, is an inter-disciplinary initiative designed to promote academic quality within the University of Michigan-Dearborn College of Business. Each year a theme is selected to guide a set of teaching, research, and community service activities. The initiative regularly includes speaker panels and events, an interdisciplinary class, and grants for both academic research and community engagement projects. Edward W. Elliott, Jr. (67 B.B.A.) has made the generous gift for this initiative in memory of his late wife Betty F. Elliott (also 67, B.B.A.).
