On March 13th, 2017 President Schlissel announced the launch of the University of Michigan Teach-Out Series with four pilot Teach-Outs. The Office of Academic Innovation is releasing a call for proposals for the next set of Teach-Outs as part of the University’s commitment to reimagining public engagement in our third century.
“There is no shortage of problems that would benefit from the academic excellence and remarkable breadth of the University of Michigan faculty. During this, our bicentennial year, two of my major priorities as president are to enhance the ability of our faculty to contribute to public understanding of critical issues and to share our expertise in a more conspicuous, and public, manner. One opportunity to achieve both is through our new U-M Teach-Out Series, which leverages academic innovation to reimagine public engagement for the century ahead, Michigan’s third century. Efforts like these will advance our mission as a public university by better connecting U-M’s broad intellectual power to areas of society where research and understanding can make a difference in lives and communities. The more we can use our work and expertise to influence decision-makers at all levels, the better our world will be.” – President Mark Schlissel
The Office of Academic Innovation encourages faculty teams to consider submitting a proposal. Please share this call with your colleagues.
