Michiginn...innto a new day!
Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan: a partnership of "town and gown" that makes The Michigan Difference™ come to life.
In 1817, the University of Michigan was established in Detroit and became the first public university in the Northwest Territories. A grant of 1,920 acres from three Great Lakes Indian nations was earmarked for the nascent institution. In 1837, the same year in which Michigan became a state, the University relocated to Ann Arbor to take advantage of an offer by local entrepreneurs of 40 acres of land at the edge of town. The acreage ceded by the Indians was sold, and the proceeds remain part of the University’s permanent endowment.
