  1. Fourth-generation grad for the Balogh family

    The Wolverine blood runs strong in this Michigan clan, whose newest alum, Amanda Balogh, BS, is the 14th member of the family to attend U-M. The pioneer was her great-grandmother Helen Cortade, who received a Michigan master’s degree in the 1920s.

  2. State House proposal would slash budget for Ann Arbor campus

    A Michigan House committee moved forward a higher-education budget bill May 5 that would radically change state-funding for U-M Ann Arbor, including a loss of some $40M in the next fiscal year.

    Approximately half of the purchased electricity for U-M’s Ann Arbor campus will soon come from Michigan-sourced renewable resources.

  4. 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.

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. ‘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.
