Forever Unfinished: Ribbon Cutting and Gallery Walk

Friday, September 8, 2017
3:00-4:00 PM
Gallery (Room 100) Hatcher Graduate Library Map
Join the exhibit creators for a ribbon cutting and a short tour of "Forever Unfinished: Making and Remaking a Public University."

The University of Michigan was founded in 1817 as a public institution, a concept for which there were few models. What makes a university public? What should it look like? Whom should it serve? Who should have access to its resources, and where should those resources come from?

This exhibit explores how students, faculty, staff, politicians, and citizens have attempted to answer these questions. These stories invite us to imagine U-M's future as a public university based on what we know about its past.

Exhibit team: Jonathan Farr, Nora Krinitsky, Michelle McClellan, Gregory Parker, Emily Price, Kate Silbert
