U-M developed this document to provide you with information about our university. Openness and accountability are values the U-M has long embraced. We offer this document, which is modeled on that of several national organizations for ease in comparing institutions, and also as an alternative to various published college rankings. At U-M, we believe that students and parents should have control over their decisions about which aspects of a university education are most important. Therefore, this instrument provides basic information across a range of issues, and introduces you to many U-M websites that offer greater depth and detail.
