'Arts of Citizenship' becomes 'Rackham Program in Public Scholarship'

The Rackham Graduate School is pleased to announce that the Arts of Citizenship program will be renamed the Rackham Program in Public Scholarship as of August 2016. Arts of Citizenship was founded in 1998 to promote sustainable campus-community collaborations in the arts, culture and humanities between U-M faculty and students and community partners. Since becoming a program of the Rackham Graduate School in 2010, Arts of Citizenship has widened its multidisciplinary reach, garnering student participation from 51 graduate degree programs across campus.

A Banner Year for Rackham Merit Fellowships

The Rackham Merit Fellowship (RMF) has been one of the Rackham Graduate School’s largest and most successful innovations for enhancing student diversity, and thereby the quality of the intellectual environment in graduate education at U-M. By offering financial assistance to those students who might not otherwise have access, the RMF not only seeks to reduce disparities in graduate education but also encourages the inclusion of students who represent a broad array of life experiences and perspectives.
