Educational Initiatives

Transforming Students: Powering Our Region

In today’s global marketplace, employees are encouraged to go above and beyond the call of duty.

Finding innovative and creative solutions to everyday problems is one way to get ahead.

That’s why University of Michigan-Dearborn is focused on creating new academic programs to support student-directed, cross-disciplinary teaching and learning.

In order to further strengthen its real-world approach to education, the university plans to launch major campus-wide educational initiatives in the coming years.

Interdisciplinary experiences are crucial in preparing our graduates for the rigors of the 21st century workplace, which demands innovation and problem-solving skills across industries. With that in mind, we are focusing on new programs that support student-directed, cross-disciplinary teaching and learning.

The goal is to raise $12 million for educational initiatives.

All gifts are valued and counted in the Victors for Michigan campaign, regardless of purpose or size.
