Victors for Michigan

On November 8, 2013, the University of Michigan announced its Victors for Michigan campaign, an ambitious campaign to raise $4 billion. The School of Education has set a financial target of $60 million to be raised during the campaign. We are looking forward to working with you to reach this goal. Your gift will support undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students; help fund needed improvements to our building’s classrooms and facilities; and support programs that enable us to build innovations and relationships to improve education practice and outcomes for youth.

Our mission focuses directly on education practice––in schools, in colleges and universities, in community-school connections, and in education leadership and policymaking. Faculty and students collaborate on research and design projects that seek to enhance teaching and learning, as well as to develop educational environments and tools for innovative practice. They seek new solutions to pressing educational problems, such as the need to strengthen teachers’ professional preparation, enhance young people’s intellectual and social-emotional growth, establish robust urban schools, and support access and equity in higher education. Faculty and students lead major initiatives to promote quality education for a diverse range of students, address persistent inequities tied to divides associated with race and income, improve teaching and learning, and develop young people’s scientific, creative, and social capabilities.

It’s vitally important work that will shape educational leaders for generations to come. We hope that you will consider supporting our mission by making a gift during our campaign. Your support will go a long way toward making the practice and delivery of quality education the backbone of American society.

With sincere gratitude for your support,

Deborah Loewenberg Ball
Dean, School of Education
