Empowering Opportunity

Strategic Plan 2023 – 2028

Vision & Mission

As a law school possessing a deep and abiding sense of humanity, we will be a driving force for justice and excellence rooted in equitable opportunity: in our profession and for all individuals seeking legal redress or support in Michigan and beyond.

To transform legal practice and policymaking, and apply our legal expertise for the public good, we generate civically engaged research and educate a diverse student community through innovative teaching and experience-based pedagogies.

This strategic plan builds on the previously adopted College Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan. Together, the two plans will ensure our strategic actions are aligned with the College's core diversity, equity, and inclusion commitments.

Strategic Goals

We are ready to bring our indefatigable humanity to bear on the challenges of equity, access, and representation facing the legal profession today.
