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 watching parties to lecture series. In addition, students regularly take advantage of the numerous opportunities available to all members of the University of Michigan community.
