It makes sense that the 9,000 students at the University of Michigan at Dearborn feel “driven” toward success. After all, their school is situated on the former estate of automotive mogul Henry Ford! Originally focused on engineering, UM-D now offers a wide breadth of over seventy-five undergraduate majors, as well as many master’s and doctoral degrees. As an extension campus of the University of Michigan, UM-D offers comparable resources while maintaining smaller class sizes; the student-to-teacher ratio is just 15 to 1. Walking on campus is not a problem, even at night: U.S. News & World Report rated UM-D the safest public university in Michigan. A number of research-oriented and academic institutes on-campus represent the forefront of innovation, from its Center for Arab-American Studies and an Environmental Interpretive Center to the Berkowitz Gallery and the Fair Lane Music Guild. And student life is vibrant here; 11 Greek chapters complement UM-D’s wide range of clubs and organizations devoted to such topics as Japanese manga, pre-optometry, chess and social justice. The Wolverines ought to be proud, for when it comes to educational opportunity, they get the best of all possible worlds!
