U-M Management Conference: Developing the Leaders and the Best

COVID-19 UPDATE: A lot has happened over the last few weeks. In order to best respond to immediate needs and preserve financial resources wherever we can, we have decided to cancel the U-M Management Conference scheduled for April 28, 2020. You can register for the Course Interest List to be notified when a future conference is scheduled.

The U-M Management Conference provides a forum for the university’s managers, at all levels, to learn best practices, hone managerial skills and increase self-knowledge.

In 2019, the Michigan Medicine Management Conference and the U-M Management Conference combined to create one leadership development opportunity for all university leaders. This conference is open to leaders on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses and in Michigan Medicine.

The conference is being offered at no cost for U-M faculty and staff.

We are busy planning this year's conference, here are some preliminary details:


There will be an online webinar session in order to maintain social distancing
