Welcome to University of Michigan-Dearborn.
Welcome to the University of Michigan-Dearborn, a university that provides the academic excellence of the University of Michigan in service to southeast Michigan.
I am honored to join UM-Dearborn this year as the university’s sixth chancellor. I was drawn to UM-Dearborn by its strong academic reputation, its dedicated and accomplished faculty and student body, and its commitment to the continued revitalization and advancement of the state.
My background is similar to that of many students on our campus. I was the first in my family to attend college and also served in the United States armed forces. My parents instilled in me the importance of an education and a commitment to serve others. These qualities hold true for many UM-Dearborn students.
This is an exciting time to join UM-Dearborn as the university celebrates enrollment growth, new programs and facilities, and a continued pursuit of excellence in teaching, research and community impact. Our programs consistently rank among the top in the state and the region, and our strategic partnerships with industry and community organizations both strengthen learning and research opportunities and help to transform our region.
It is a privilege for me to lead the university as we work together to build on its storied history and work to make an even greater difference in the lives of our students and region.
