Academic Innovation was charged by President Schlissel and Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Pollack to steward the Academic Innovation Initiative. Through this strategic initiative we fostered deep conversations among all members of the U-M community (pre-college learners, students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and the public). This highly engaging and collaborative community discussion connected our commitments to academic excellence, inclusion, and innovation in order to continue Michigan’s leadership role in defining how the world learns from and with a great public research university.

Dear Colleagues,

Since our founding nearly 200 years ago, the University of Michigan has led the way in shaping higher education and been a model for the public research university. We are excited to invite you to participate in the next stage in the evolution of U-M’s leadership in higher education.

This fall, we will launch an Academic Innovation Initiative to consider how U-M will lead the way for higher education through the information age and further strengthen our impact on society. We will examine how teaching can be enhanced by ubiquitous access to digital content, by unprecedented opportunities for connection, and by an explosion of data about learners, educators, and their interactions… Read more

In organizing this effort, Academic Innovation worked closely with the Academic Innovation Initiative Steering Committee. During the 2016-17 academic year, we:

  • Launched a set of rich and interconnected experiments to explore the future of education at the University of Michigan, on and off campus, in formal and informal environments.
  • Assessed the constraints that inhibit academic innovation and explore ways to overcome them.
  • Proposed designs for structures and systems that enable ongoing academic innovation across the U-M.
  • Recommended investments and solutions by which the designs can be realized and made available to the entire U-M community.
  • Proposed a transformational approach for leveraging academic innovation to shape the future of education and further realize our mission.

Faculty-led design groups helped guide the community’s exploration of the following themes and proposed experiments and pilot projects to push the boundaries of how U-M can meet the needs of pre-college, residential and global life-long learners.
