Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy

2014 Calendar Inspiring the next century of citizens, public servants, and leaders


100 years ago, visionaries at the

University of Michigan launched a program leading to a Master of Arts in Municipal Administration ­— the nation’s first systematic public service training program with a municipal focus. Right from that groundbreaking start, the Ford School earned its reputation as a true pioneer in policy education. Forty-five years ago, we built the nation’s first interdisciplinary, analytic public policy degree. In 1999, we proudly took the name of the University of Michigan’s favorite son, the 38th President of the United States of America. Today, we’re known around the world as an elite policy school housed at a world-class University. And now, on the cusp of our second century, the Ford School’s vision is bold. To inspire and train exceptional leaders. To launch and lead game-changing research projects that transform how we address society’s most intractable challenges. To arm policy communities in the state of Michigan, in Washington, D.C., and around the world with first-rate insights and discoveries. We hope you will join us throughout 2014, as we celebrate and reflect on the history, evolution, and future of one of the world’s premier schools of public policy.

Susan M. Collins Joan and Sanford Weill Dean of Public Policy
