Connecting Michigan

Connecting Michigan seeks to explore the feasibility of developing a coordinated, broadly accessible, technology-enabled infrastructure for community and civic engagement, which builds upon, and coordinates where appropriate, existing decentralized inventories in order to advance U-M’s mission and amplify its contributions to the public good.

This exploration is a partnership between the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Vice President for Government Relations, the Ginsberg Center, Academic Innovation, and other key stakeholders who are working with external consultants to advance the exploration process, including engaging in campus interviews, identifying key opportunities and challenges, and making recommendations for next steps.
