Open Mike: Resources and Support Amid Extraordinary Challenges

Dean Solomon addresses the multifaceted pressures facing students at this time.

Mining the Past

With support from the Rackham Program in Public Scholarship, anthropology alumnus Colin Quinn helped start a program that connects a Romanian community with its mining heritage.

Unequal Treatment

New research led by Rackham public health Ph.D. student Delvon Mattingly shows Black COVID-19 patients in Michigan have nearly double the number of hospital stays and worse experiences with testing and care than their white counterparts.

Boosting the Signal

Tribal radio stations are important sources of healthcare information in Native American communities. With support from the Rackham Program in Public Scholarship and Rackham summer research funding, Ph.D. alumna Jana Wilbricht studied this crucial role, and helped two stations better reach their audiences.

Moral Victories

With support from the Rackham Program in Public Scholarship, U-M philosophy Ph.D. alum Zoë A. Johnson King co-founded the Michigan High School Ethics Bowl, helping high school students explore and apply moral philosophy to local issues.

A Culture of Sustainability

In 2019, U-M launched a commission to help it achieve carbon neutrality. Rackham nursing graduate Megan Czerwinski used her expertise in sustainability and health education to help members of the U-M community understand the stakes and learn how they can contribute.

Rackham’s Strategic Vision for Graduate Education

Rackham is leading a charge to reenvision graduate education at U-M in a way that is student centered and faculty led, and that emphasizes a holistic view of graduate training.
