The University of Michigan has launched the most ambitious fundraising campaign in the history of public higher education.
President Mary Sue Coleman announced the Victors for Michigan campaign, which aims to raise $4 billion. Coleman says she’s confident the university’s alumni and friends will come through.
The Victors for Michigan campaign will focus on three priorities, the highest of which is student support. It will also raise money for areas described as engaged learning and bold ideas.
The campaign already has $1.7 billion in the bank – money raised during a two-year so-called “silent phase”.
