Each spring, Ford School faculty and staff nominate dozens of outstanding student research and service projects for recognition at the Gramlich Showcase of Student Work. Established in 2008 to honor internationally renowned economist and former Ford School dean, Ned Gramlich, this event features exceptional student work on a broad range of local, national, and international policy challenges.

For students, the showcase is an opportunity to share their academic work and service engagement with the broader community – to teach others about major policy challenges, to respond to thought-provoking questions, and to engage in dialogue about complex problems. For guests, the showcase represents an opportunity to learn about contemporary domestic and international problems, and the policy interventions designed to tackle them.

Join the Ford School community for hors d'oeuvres and refreshments as we celebrate the insightful policy work of our talented students. You're sure to learn something new.

Learn more about Ned and his legacy at the Ford School and at the University of Michigan.
