UM-Dearborn’s many centers and institutes further our commitment to collaboration and community. Through archives, outreach, special lectures and seminars, conferences, cultural programs, publications, funded research opportunities, community partnerships and more, our centers and institutes provide interdisciplinary spaces for intellectual inquiry, groundbreaking exploration and social understanding.

Our centers and institutes reflect the cultural diversity and array of interests represented on our campus. Students and faculty can volunteer to restore habitats and preserve natural areas, collect and archive oral histories of Arab Detroit or explore the latest issues in AI and cybersecurity, among many other opportunities. This work helps prepare students for innovative careers, while educating, engaging and enriching our campus and our community.
