  1. U-M board votes to censure Regent Ron Weiser

    For the first time in its history, U-M’s Board of Regents voted in a special meeting April 2 to censure member Ronald Weiser. He called three top state leaders “witches” and suggested assassination for political foes.

  2. Former U-M President Mary Sue Coleman recognized in building naming

    The building that houses the Life Sciences Institute will be named after President Emerita Mary Sue Coleman. The building—to be called Mary Sue Coleman Hall—is the first academic building on the Ann Arbor campus to be named for a woman.

  3. Carbon neutrality commission submits final recommendations

    Focus is on scalable, transferable, and financially responsible strategies for U-M to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions across the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses.

  4. Choose your own adventure

    Experience an earthquake, frolic on Mars, and chase a robot up the stairs. It’s just another dazzling day at U-M’s Ford Motor Company Robotics Building, now open for mind-bending business.

  5. Fall plan to include most classes in person, open residence halls

    The U-M community will return to campus this fall with most classes taught in person, residence halls open at nearly 80 percent capacity, athletic events with fans in the stands, and the campus abuzz with activity.

  6. ‘Tis the gift to be life-changing

    When an ambassador from the bone marrow and stem cell registry Gift of Life visited his U-M fraternity, Brendan Dunn, BS ’20, provided a tissue sample. The process was unremarkable. Then his phone rang.

  7. Music mattered most: How a medical team granted this patient’s wish

    To ease the pain of this musician’s medical journey, his support team at Michigan Medicine connected him to the Gifts of Art program. They fulfilled David Labelle’s wish to play the grand piano in University Hospital before he passed away.

  8. Michigan Medicine launches COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Michigan Stadium

    Michigan Medicine has already vaccinated nearly 7,000 health care workers and, through the opening of the Stadium and other planned locations, aims to deliver all vaccine doses received from the state quickly and safely.

  9. Mysteries at Michigan

    Before COVID-19, the college campus could be described as America’s ‘last idyll.’ Perhaps that is why so many mystery writers over time have set their tales of terror at a fictionalized University of Michigan.
