- Learn about the communities that a majority of our students call home.
- Encourage service to the public and research to address state problems.
- Show how the University of Michigan is connected to the entire state.
- Introduce faculty to the Michigan some of them might otherwise never see.
- Promote interaction among faculty across the disciplines.
