Community Partner Resources


The Office of Metropolitan Impact (OMI) is your connection to innovative engagement for the University and our surrounding community.  Through strategic community partnering, research opportunities, programing opportunities, paid and unpaid internships and work-study opportunities, University faculty and students are helping to co-create tomorrow’s greater Detroit – today.  OMI is here to help community partners identify UM-Dearborn campus resources that best address their needs.
