um3detroit is an interdisciplinary gathering that brings together researchers, educators, students, and community partners — from across the University of Michigan campuses and Detroit-based organizations — to share and strengthen our connections to Detroit and each other.

The inaugural um3detroit event took place in May 2017 at the Ross School of Business in Ann Arbor.

The second event took place in May 2018 on the U-M Dearborn campus. The event featured a series of speakers, lightning talks, panels and posters.
