The report includes a message from the president and a financial section featuring summary reports on UM’s overall fiscal picture and its endowment, as well as statements and notes on its financial position.

Find stories and key metrics on how our community has acted with courage, before we knew what 2020 would bring and now during these very trying times—adapting, evolving, and in many ways accelerating our progress in teaching, research, service, and innovation.
This past year, we achieved historic milestones, attracted new talent, and expanded the reach of our academic and health enterprises. We did this as one University and as one team. Every day, we leverage our geographic, cultural, and intellectual resources to address real challenges facing our world—all in an environment that nurtures a sense of belonging and a responsibility to the world we share.

During the 2017-18 academic year, we bolstered our leadership team, deepened our commitment to a culture of belonging where everyone feels valued and adds value, and launched specific efforts to cross-pollinate interdisciplinary discovery and understanding.

To create or transform anything in life, there must be a connection—atoms to atoms, ideas to ideas, people to people.
