Michigan Impact

Special Edition
July 2014

Dear Friends,

This week marks my final days as president of the University of Michigan. Dr. Mark Schlissel will become the University's 14th president on July 14. 

Serving for 12 years as president of this great university has been a privilege and the most rewarding experience of my professional life. I have been committed to leaving the University a stronger place than when I began as president, and I believe we are well positioned to further our mission as a great research institution dedicated to the public good.

That happens because of teamwork and a commitment to excellence by our Board of Regents, faculty and staff, students and alumni. I have also seen firsthand the dedication of alumni like you who want to deepen U-M’s impact in our state, nation and world.

Alumni are our greatest ambassadors, and I am grateful for your support. Thank you for making the University of Michigan such a remarkable institution.

As always, it’s a pleasure to share with you examples of our work throughout the state.

Sincerely,
Mary Sue Coleman
