Effective August 1, 2014, the office of the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education has split into two offices.

If you are uncertain as to which of us to contact, don’t hesitate to contact both of us. We are willing to help you out!

Best regards,
Dawn & Jennifer

This is accomplished by identifying new research opportunities, encouraging research collaborations, and facilitating partnerships among faculty both within and outside of U-M as well as non-University individuals and organizations.
