Nothing Neutral About Net Neutrality

The future of the Internet as we know it hangs in the balance. LSA Communication Studies Professor Amanda Lotz explains what’s at stake in the Federal Communications Commission’s next move and why no decision can make everyone happy.

Be A Victor

We strive to support the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, LSA needs you—because the world needs Victors.

When Mom's Luck Runs Out

The transition to motherhood is difficult for all new mothers, but one LSA researcher is trying to understand the hidden advantages many middle-class moms chalk up to “luck”—and what that means for moms who aren’t so lucky.

LSA and the March for Science

The March for Science took place in Washington, D.C., and in more than 600 other cities around the world. Some LSA scientists are looking to stretch this historical moment into a movement—to demonstrate that science is worth protecting.


The Case for Diversity

Diversity beats sameness, and one LSA professor is out to prove it. With his book The Difference, Scott E. Page (A.B. ’85), an honors math alumnus and current professor of complex systems, political science, and economics, uses math and logic to make the case that higher diversity yields greater tangible benefits. Now, Page gets invited to consult with organizations like the Mellon Foundation, Google, the U.S. Federal Reserve, the U.S. Treasury, and NASA, among others. They’re taking his argument seriously and running with it in the real world.

Likewise, diverse perspectives are vital to the liberal arts mission of LSA. Departments throughout the College see value in diversity—with benefits both tangible and intangible—and are taking action as a result: They’re developing plans and programs to create a more diverse student body and faculty.






The Power of Internships

At LSA, we understand that to change the world takes actually experiencing it. And we are committed to providing our students the support they need in order to pair their LSA education with real-life opportunities. Watch how LSA internships are changing students’ perspectives on their coursework and giving them a crucial advantage in their careers.

Student Union

More than 40 years ago, students demanded U-M make black student enrollment and success a higher priority. When the administration increased admissions from underserved communities, the students created a program to help them once they got here.
