Institutes & Centers

Centers and institutes at UM-Dearborn focus on raising awareness and creating connections through hands-on learning, scholarly research and community education.

Through outreach, special lectures and seminars, creative projects and performances, and funded research opportunities, we build collaborative relationships between our campus and surrounding communities.

Our centers and institutes reflect the cultural diversity and array of interests represented on our campus. The work we do helps prepare students for innovative careers, while strengthening ties to our community.

Students and faculty can volunteer to restore habitats and preserve natural areas, listen to Holocaust survivors tell their stories firsthand or share their ideas with local innovators in the auto industry, among many other opportunities.

Our Environmental Interpretive Center works to develop strategies for creating cleaner, healthier and more sustainable communities.
