University of Michigan-Dearborn was founded in 1959 with a gift of just over 200 acres of land and $6.5 million from the Ford Motor Co. Since registering the first class of 34 students, the institution continued to grow, setting a new enrollment record in 2012, and refine its vision for southeast Michigan: “In service to creating positive change in southeast Michigan, our vision is to earn national recognition as a dynamic metropolitan university where teaching and research interact, in an inclusive environment, to develop future leaders and new knowledge.”
