How to Lead in the Digital Age: U of M as a Great Public Research University

The Digital Education & Innovation Team

“What does it mean to be a great public research university in an age fueled by technology, fueled by connection, fueled by evidence and analytics, what do you do in that world?”
– James Hilton

Recently, the DEI Lab sat down with faculty and administration leaders from around the University to discuss the future of U of M in the digital age. We asked these leaders to tackle some of the big questions about how U of M becomes a leader in the landscape of digital education, and the unique challenges and opportunities that we face to get there.

  • What makes us unique in our role as a public university?
  • What does it mean to be open in a technology fueled age?
  • What unique capacities does U of M have in a world where students expect digital solutions in their classes?
