Your contributions to Rackham graduate students in 2020 played a critical role in our students’ ability to continue their work in the face of uncertainty. Your impact will be felt for years to come across the wide breadth of academic fields at the University of Michigan. The Honor Roll recognizes the generosity of Rackham alumni and friends who donated in 2020, and each name represents a commitment to excellence in graduate education and a show of support as we continue our efforts as a global leader in research and scholarly training.
Corporate matching gifts also play a vital role in our ability to provide student and program support. In this honor roll, we continue to credit each donor with his or her corporate matching gift. Therefore, you may find yourself listed in a higher giving range than expected.
Thank you again for your generous support and invaluable partnership. Go Blue!
