1. Email on the reappointment of UM-Dearborn Chancellor Dan Little

    February 19, 2015

    Dear Colleagues:

    I am pleased to announce the reappointment of UM-Dearborn Chancellor Dan Little, following a vote by the Board of Regents at today’s meeting.

    Chancellor Little’s distinguished leadership of UM-Dearborn began in 2000. He has advanced the metropolitan vision for the campus and built strong partnerships in the regional community. Today, the campus is a more vibrant destination for students and community members. He has established new academic programs in health care fields, and grown UM-Dearborn enrollment to an all-time high.

    Throughout his tenure, he has maintained a steadfast commitment to equity and inclusion, resulting in an increasingly diverse student body and a campus that is welcoming and supportive for students, faculty and staff.

    I have had the pleasure of seeing his commitment and success first-hand during two visits to UM-Dearborn and meetings with members of the campus community. His reappointment is effective this July and runs through June 30, 2018.

    Please join me in congratulating Chancellor Little.

    Sincerely,

    Mark Schlissel
