On the path to sustainability
Anya Sirota, an associate professor of architecture at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, and her partner, Jean Louis Farges, run Akoaki, a design studio in Detroit. The team has been working with the Oakland Avenue Urban Farm for nearly four years to develop a vision and “guiding plan” to make it self-sufficient and sustainable.
From Foster Care to Fulfillment
Cherish Fields spent many unsettled years moving around in foster care before proudly graduating from the University of Michigan with degrees in sociology and social work. At U-M, Fields was a Blavin Scholar, part of a program for foster children that started in 2006 as a scholarship through the generous financial contributions of Paul and Amy Blavin, a couple with U-M ties.
Our amazing and generous donors have made U-M the first public university ever to raise $5 billion in a fundraising campaign. This makes Victors for Michigan the most successful campaign in U-M history. It is also further evidence of the power of the University of Michigan Family, whose generosity makes excellence possible across the breadth of our three campuses and Michigan Medicine.
