Victors for UM-Dearborn

UM-Dearborn Giving Campaign

Transforming Students: Powering Our Region

For more than 50 years, University of Michigan-Dearborn has worked for the greater good—transforming lives, creating victors to help shape the world and constantly evolving to address the key issues of contemporary times.

Our past achievements are a source of great pride and satisfaction. But our focus must be on the future, for our world is shifting in dramatic and sudden ways. America’s best colleges and universities are being asked to address the new realities and accelerating demands of the 21st century.

Today we are focused on producing more victors to transform challenges into opportunities. Looking ahead, we see a UM-Dearborn that continues to play a vital role in developing the leaders of tomorrow—men and women able to address the complex challenges of southeast Michigan and other metropolitan areas nationwide.

The Victors for UM-Dearborn Campaign offers alumni and friends the opportunity to make a real and lasting difference in the future of UM-Dearborn and, in turn, the future of our region, our nation and our world.

The overall U-M campaign is expected to run through 2018.
