Check out our labs, studios, classroom and facilities and meet some of the students, faculty and staff who make the University of Michigan-Dearborn such a vibrant and welcoming place. Many campus events are open to the public. 

Once you’ve gotten a sense of our academics, take in the rest of our beautiful campus: visit the Stamelos Gallery, walk the trails at our Environmental Interpretive Center, tour the grounds of the Henry and Clara Ford estate or simply relax outside the Renick University Center or along Chancellor’s Pond.
