Distinguished Diversity Leaders Award

"Diversity is a key ingredient in the excellence of the University of Michigan. When we engage with people from different backgrounds, we learn more and have greater potential to make an impact on our students, patients and society. We cannot be excellent without being diverse."

- President Mark Schlissel
