Funding support available for "Write to Change the World" OpEd Project workshop

The OpEd Project’s mission is to change who writes history. It partners with organizations of all sizes and from across industries and fields to diversify knowledge and accelerate solutions to society’s greatest challenges.

The University of Michigan is located on the territory of the Anishinaabe people. In 1817, the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodewadami Nations made the largest single land transfer to the University of Michigan, ceded in the Treaty of Fort Meigs, so that their children could be educated. We acknowledge the history of native displacement that allowed the University of Michigan to be founded. Today we reaffirm contemporary and ancestral Anishinaabek ties to the land and their profound contributions to this institution.
