Transforming Students: Powering Our Region

UM-Dearborn is committed to transforming the lives of our students regardless of their financial background and powering the region with industry-relevant research and work-ready graduates, most of whom stay in Southeast Michigan. The support of our alumni and friends is critical if the university is to achieve with these goals.

Much of the university’s success lies in students and they are our first priority. UM-Dearborn prides itself on providing students throughout the region with access to an excellent education that will help them succeed after graduation. In fact, nearly 70 percent of UM-Dearborn students receive some sort of financial aid.

After graduation, many students will enter the workforce, and will be asked to find innovative and creative solutions to everyday challenges. That is why the university is focused on creating new academic programs and opportunities to support student-directed, cross-disciplinary teaching and learning. The campus’ strength lies in its real-world approach to education, so with the support of alumni and friends, UM-Dearborn is launching major campus-wide educational initiatives in the coming years.

In order to carry out those initiatives, learning environments and faculty excellence will remain key priorities. A 21st-century education no longer takes place only in a traditional classroom. That’s why our facilities play a major role in promoting a creative learning environment that focuses on collaboration between students and faculty. UM-Dearborn’s future success also lies in its ability to recruit and retain top-tier faculty and researchers. They help shape our victors and prepare them for success in their careers and communities.
