Ph.D. Candidate

"I’m a big supporter of Michigan and do what I can to recruit students to U-M. Rackham has integrity in its funding. If they say there’s an emergency fund, there’s an emergency fund. If they say there is conference funding or research funding, it is there. They will help you. Rackham follows through and makes a tough process manageable.

Graduate students do much of the research, we teach undergraduates and we collaborate with world renowned faculty. We make Michigan work. The quality of graduate students drives the caliber of education at the University of Michigan. I want to help donors understand what’s necessary to improve the University and to stay at the top of the pack."
