Price Gifts Support Rackham Graduate School, Clements Library

The late Professor Jacob Price of Ann Arbor was passionate about the University of Michigan, his students and history.

A distinguished faculty member for 35 years, Price saw teaching history as his gift to students. Decades after retiring, he found another way to give students and scholars the gift of education by including the Rackham Graduate School and William L. Clements Library in his will, further cementing his legacy at U-M.

A Very Barbour Summer

It was an extremely empowering summer in our department at the Rackham Graduate School, and we’d like to thank all of you for contributing to it.

Our team grew by 50% for 10 weeks as we added two U-M students to our roster, both focusing on different aspects of the Barbour Scholar program as we prepare for the centennial events that will transpire in 2017.

2016 Predoctoral Fellows and Distinguished Dissertation Awards - The Best Ph.D. Students On Campus and Off

Spring is award ceremony for us at Rackham. There are no red carpets, no paparazzi, no fashion do’s and don’ts. But we do have ceremonies to acknowledge some of the most stellar doctoral students on campus at the Predoctoral Fellow reception. Read about the accomplishments of these deserving 83 grad students.

We also acknowledge the Distinguished Dissertation Award winners - the ten best dissertations from the previous year’s graduating class.

Congratulations to all the recipients!
