The Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT), with support from the Rackham Graduate School and the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, brought U-M international faculty together for the first time Feb. 4 to socialize, network and discuss ways in which the University can support their work, as well as become a more effective global university. More than 600 faculty gathered in the Vandenberg Room of the Michigan League for the dinner event. Speakers were Shirley Neuman, dean of LS&A, and Jun Ni, professor of mechanical engineering and director of the S.M. Wu Manufacturing Research Center. (Photo by Bill Wood, U-M Photo Services)
