The Ford School community
From the day you enroll, you’re part of a great community—close-knit, engaged, and active while in school, and well-connected, involved, and committed long after graduation.
With approximately 110 MPP students, 25 MPA students, 6 PhD students, and 80 undergraduate students entering each year, the Ford School offers tremendous opportunities for leadership, collaboration, and participation.
The Ford School's combination of core courses, seminar-style classes, and group assignments creates close relationships among students and faculty. Regular luncheon meetings and special presentations draw people together for discussion of pressing policy challenges.
A wide range of student-led activities creates a lively, energetic, and diverse environment--from basketball tournaments to election night watch parties to lecture series. In addition, students regularly take advantage of the numerous opportunities available to all members of the University of Michigan community.
