Dear Center for Academic Innovation Friends,

I am delighted to share that the Center for Academic Innovation and the broader University of Michigan community will be participating in Giving Blueday on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.

Now, more than ever, it’s critical that we engage learners on campus, across the great state of Michigan, and around the world and to make our world-class public research university’s learning experiences accessible at scale.

Show your support for the Center for Academic Innovation by contributing on Giving Blueday!
