A new frontier
On a normal day, during a normal year, the U-M Library’s popular Computer & Video Game Archive is abuzz with activity. Located in the basement of the Duderstadt Center on U-M’s North Campus, the CVGA has continued to maintain its dual mission of providing users access to their game collection while also preserving them for future research and scholarship.
Detroit River narratives
For a long time, the importance of the Detroit River to the history and identity of southeast Michigan has not been recognized by many area residents. U-M's Detroit River Story Lab leverages the resources of the university community and local organizations to research and amplify stories of the Detroit River to bring its rich history and current challenges to life for the local community.
In an effort to fight loneliness and bring generations together, U-M alum Emily Lerner founded Perfect Pair in 2020 — an organization that matches seniors at assisted living facilities with college students who have similar interests. So far, Perfect Pair has made 52 matches with 100 college student volunteers in seven partner communities in Ann Arbor, Farmington Hills, Northville and Saline.
