The Heritage Project is an immersive, digital experience of the University of Michigan’s past. It is a collection of multimedia stories about the people who have shaped, and been shaped by, one of the world’s great public universities.

By design, the Heritage Project is not the definitive history of U-M. Rather, it is a living resource that will grow and change as the University’s life continues.

The Project also connects to other sources of information about the University’s history.

It is a production of the Office of the President, the Office of the Vice President for Global Communications and Strategic Initiatives, and the Bentley Historical Library.
