With GRADitude: A Virtual Celebration of Rackham Donors and Scholars

Rackham donors have long been the difference between a graduate education and a robust graduate experience. This year, the donors and alumni of our community have supported Rackham students in deeply impactful ways. Michigan graduate students have faced, adapted to, and overcome extraordinary challenges–ones unique to our time for which there were no paths of least resistance and no best practices on which to base their approach. Thanks to Rackham donors, they weren’t left standing alone through these trials.

Thank You Rackham Donors

From all of us at the Rackham Graduate School, on behalf of the students for whom you make such a tangible difference, thank you.
