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.
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.
Our students are improving the lives of others and making an impact in the community. Meet more Difference Makers.
