Transforming Students: Powering Our Region
A 21st-century education no longer lives in a traditional classroom.
Engineers learn the trade by building vehicles in state-of-the-art machine shops.
Scientists hone their research skills by conducting experiments in high-tech labs.
And financial analysts gain a better understanding of Wall Street by working in real-world trading rooms.
In the past decade, learning has moved far beyond textbooks and whiteboards. Today, the most effective educational experiences are student-directed, creative, collaborative and interdisciplinary. To accommodate this new model of education, the university must design learning spaces and campus-life programs that give UM-Dearborn students a competitive edge…and prepare them to become victors for our world.
In order to promote a creative learning environment that focuses on collaboration between students and faculty, facilities are an important fundraising priority for the university.
The goal is to raise $12 million for learning environments.
Our students are improving the lives of others and making an impact in the community. Meet more Difference Makers.
