March 2023 Director’s Update

Dear Center for Academic Innovation Community,

The University of Michigan network is truly global. We are home to three proud campuses, faculty hailing from around the world, and over 10 million students and learners at all stages of their lifelong learning journey. Among our students, some will study on campus in person while others will learn remotely where they are. All are united as part of our Michigan community.

Today is Giving Blueday, the university’s annual day of giving. It is a day to reflect on the impact that a Michigan education can make in the lives of students and, should your plans allow, make a gift to support our university’s work.

A gift to the Center for Academic Innovation supports our efforts to share a U-M education with learners on campus and those around the world in nearly every country on Earth. It means supporting student success and campus-to-career pathways through educational technology that powers student competency-building and academic achievement. Your support also fuels student fellows who work at the center to build valuable professional skills in fields like extended reality technology, educational research, and learning experience design.

Supporting our work means adding your voice to our collective conversation around the future of learning. A gift allows us to build the learning opportunities that meet the needs of today’s students, an evolving workforce, engaged citizens, and aspiring leaders across sectors and society. Your gift allows these learners to understand the past, challenge the present, and prepare to address the challenges of tomorrow’s world. 

Any gift to the University of Michigan is meaningful. On this Giving Blueday, we would be grateful to receive your support.

Thank you for all of your continued support and participation in the CAI community!

Go Blue!
