Over the decades, our wonderful supporters – including the Fred and Barbara Erb family, The Dow Chemical Company and Foundation, Peter M. Wege, and Donald Graham – have been central to U-M’s success. They have helped us improve environmental, economic and community health in the Great Lakes and through projects overseas.
To further enhance our impact, we have created a new school for our next century. The School for Environment and Sustainability will foster interdisciplinary research and education that addresses global challenges. The new school follows U-M’s tradition of rising to meet the dynamic challenges and opportunities of sustainability.
The School for Sustainability and Environment will pursue collaborative approaches to societal issues that are at the intersection of our environment and fields including business, public policy, health and law, to name just a few. It will bring together faculty from different disciplines and encourage students to approach problems from multiple perspectives.
I am proud of our many accomplishments and am excited by the opportunities ahead. Thank you for your interest in and support of Planet Blue. Your dedication to U-M, our students, and the future of our world is an inspiration to our entire community.
