The University of Michigan is one of the world’s leading public
research universities serving a diverse population of 41,000 students of which
over 26,000 are undergraduates, who come from throughout the United States and
over 80 foreign countries. University of
Michigan is home to
19 schools and colleges offering top-ranked academic
programs and diverse cultural and social opportunities in a stimulating
intellectual environment. The University
is well known for its commitment to public engagement.
13 years, the University’s Ginsberg Center for Community Service Learning, a
unit within Student Life, has served as a national leader in the fields of
service learning, social innovation, and engaged learning. In 2012, the
Center’s leadership, staff, faculty and other stakeholders engaged in an
extensive and inclusive strategic planning process and created an exciting new vision
for the Center to focus on social impact outcomes. This vision includes
utilizing a Collective Impact model to create a hub for large-scale social change,
leveraging the significant resources and global reach of the University, and
will focus on addressing community-identified needs, engaging students and faculty
in community-based scholarship, service, and learning, and ensuring the
Center’s ongoing leadership and contribution to the fields of service learning,
social innovation, and engaged learning nationally. Notably, to date there has
been extensive progress in the area of childhood literacy, one of the stated
priorities of the Ginsberg Center. This new vision is an opportunity for the
University to demonstrate what is possible when you coalesce significant human
and financial capital in support of ambitious social change goals and to be an
exemplar for other institutions of higher education.
