The Leaders and the Rest: Boundaries and Belonging at the University of Michigan

Friday, February 17, 2017
8:00 AM-7:00 PM
Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery (Room 100) Hatcher Graduate Library Map
Who belongs at the University of Michigan? Who gets to draw its boundaries? Michigan students have asked and answered these questions for nearly two hundred years. Against a backdrop of local, national, and global change, they have negotiated their place and redefined their responsibilities. At times, students have debated among each other, sparred with faculty and administrators, negotiated with community members, and contended with politicians. In so doing, they have shaped the physical campus, the student body, the meaning of community, and the university’s mission as a public institution.

This exhibit showcases key moments of student expression, politics, and culture from the first decades of the university’s existence in Ann Arbor, through the upheavals of world wars, and to the social and cultural turmoil of the late-twentieth century.

On display January 4-February 25, 2017, Hatcher Library Gallery (Room 100).

This LSA Bicentennial Theme Semester initiative is presented with support from the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts and the University of Michigan Bicentennial Office. Additional support provided by the Department of History and the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies.
