The University of Michigan–Dearborn (commonly referred to as UM-Dearborn, UM-D), is a public university located in Dearborn, Michigan, USA. It is one of the three campuses of the University of Michigan operating under the policies of the Board of Regents. The main campus in Ann Arbor, an internationally recognized and celebrated center for education and research, is located just 35 miles to the west; the other campus is in Flint. While governed by a single publicly elected Board of Regents, each campus has a unique mission, a suite of academic programs, and an identity as one of the 15 public universities of the State of Michigan. Additionally, each campus receives a separate appropriation in the state budget.
Enrolled students have full access to the extensive library systems, galleries, and sporting events of the main campus, and graduates are members of the largest alumni organization of its kind in the world, the University of Michigan Alumni Association. Faculty and students collaborate across all three campuses in research and scholarly activity, and degrees for all three campuses are conferred by the Board of Regents of the University of Michigan.
Originally known for its elite engineering and management programs, UM-D now offers over 90 academic majors, 28 masters degree programs, and 3 doctoral degree programs across all disciplines. Both the College of Computer Science and Engineering and the College of Business have been designated as some of the best programs in both the nation and region. A part of the Metro Detroit region, UM-D is also known for its community engagement within the city of Detroit, and is part of The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities.
