CAN YOU CHANGE THE WORLD FROM YOUR OWN BACKYARD?
A lot of people come to the UofM thinking they know us well. They have seen our men’s basketball team on TV contending for national championships. They know our graduates and hire them every day.
But behind the caps and gowns, behind the wins and losses, there is another amazing story to tell. Our research capabilities are world-class and a role model for other universities. Our unique relationship with the city means we can provide insights to issues that are very specific to industries in urban settings.
For years, researchers at the UofM have been providing the data innovators need. We uncover opportunities and do critical work, serving as the catalyst for discoveries, inventions and knowledge that wind up as real products in the marketplace or as services benefitting the public. Many of them go global.
