University of Michigan Land Acknowledgement
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 donation to the University of Michigan, ceded in the Treaty at the Foot of the Rapids 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.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Residential College needs your support.
