Get to know us!

We're delighted to welcome you to the Ford School and U-M.

The Ford School at the University of Michigan is a community dedicated to the public good.

We inspire and prepare diverse leaders grounded in service, conduct transformational research, and collaborate on evidence-based policymaking to take on our communities' and our world's most pressing challenges. We look forward to welcoming the next cohort of insightful, engaged leaders to our community, but you don't have to wait until the fall to start connecting.

We can't wait to get to know you!
