At University of Michigan-Dearborn, we emphasize hands-on learning, small class sizes, engaged faculty and a commitment to impact southeast Michigan.
We prepare students to be Difference Makers in industry and in the community long before they graduate. And we’re addressing challenges to the region head-on through pioneering research, strategic partnerships and civic engagement.
We are creative thinkers, innovators and leaders, and we’re proud to call Dearborn home. Our beautiful campus, once owned by Henry Ford, continues to foster his bold spirit of entrepreneurship and collaboration.
Representing more than 50 birth countries and diverse backgrounds, our students value and uphold an inclusive culture built on mutual respect and integrity. Together, we cultivate an environment in which we can learn from each other and work toward a greater understanding.
History & Facts
University of Michigan-Dearborn was founded in 1959 with a gift of just over 200 acres from the Ford Motor Company. Since then, we’ve grown as a comprehensive, top-ranked, regional public university.
