SUBJECT: Exciting New Initiative from the Provost's Office Team

March 1, 2022 at 4:46 PM

I am very excited to announce a partnership between myself and Valeria Bertacco, Vice Provost for Engaged Learning at UM-AA, on a new grant program dedicated to supporting small groups of U-M faculty and staff members (with a faculty lead) in organizing a workshop, speaker series, or similar event centered on a topic relevant to Detroit communities. My office will support up to two proposals in the amount of $15K each with the goal of fostering more connections and collaborations among the hundreds of Detroit projects and initiatives we engage with on our campus.

Proposals should be submitted by a faculty lead organizer, affiliated with an academic unit in the Ann Arbor or Dearborn campuses. Go to the Engaged Michigan website to learn more and to apply!

Tracy Hall (, OMI Director, is providing individualized support to faculty teams interested in applying. Please reach out to her if you need any assistance in putting together a proposal or have any questions.

With all best wishes,


Gabriella Scarlatta
Interim Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
