Campaign Leadership

Richard Rogel

Everyone here has a passion, a goal they want to achieve, a way to make the world a better place. It's tremendous. We have top researchers, great administrators, fabulous students — all dedicated to saving lives. We — you and I — have dreams, too. We want to cure breast cancer. We want to help families whose loved ones have Alzheimer’s. We can do that here. This is 'Collaboration University'. I’ve seen it in action, and everybody can be a part of it . This campaign is just the beginning of what we can accomplish together.

“The Victors for Michigan Campaign will be a game changer. By investing in research and supporting the people who can push the boundaries of medicine, we will expand U-M’s capabilities as one of the nation’s top translational research institutions. We will drive a resurgence in the Michigan economy, establishing the region as a global epicenter for the biomedical sector. And most importantly, we will save lives."
