Good morning, 

Welcome to the June 1 edition of the Monthly Roundup. We hope you have taken some time to relax after finals and are enjoying summer break so far. We also hope you have missed us in your inbox each week — we sure have missed you — but don’t worry, we’ll still make sure you get your dose of the University’s best news after each month this summer. 

This month, Money named the University of Michigan as the best college in the country for personal value, the Board of Regents discussed new dean appointments, among other University matters, and The Daily explored the complicated and uncertain future of UMich abortion access.

UMich named No. 1 U.S. College for personal value by Money

Worried you aren’t getting enough out of your UMich education? Personal finance website, Money, formerly known as Money Magazine, says otherwise. The University of Michigan is the best value college in the country, according to Money’s Best Colleges in America list for 2022-23. The University topped the list of over 600 U.S. colleges and universities with a score of 89.41 out of 100. The second and third place spots were also awarded to public universities. Money used three categories – affordability, quality and student outcomes – to evaluate personal value, all of which the University scored exceptionally high on.

Regents approve new chief diversity officer, updates to the president’s house at May meeting

The University of Michigan Board of Regents and Interim President Mary Sue Coleman met at the U-M Dearborn campus this month to discuss important dean appointments. The regents approved interim provost Laurie McCauley’s recommendation of Tabbye M. Chavous for the next vice provost for equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer. Chavous, in addition to the three new deans of Business, Pharmacy and Art & Design schools, will serve five-year terms starting this summer. The regents also approved a $15 million update for the president’s house on South University Avenue and discussed other pressing matters on campus.

The complex future of UMich abortion access

After SCOTUS Justice Smauel Alito’s majority opinion draft in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked, SCOTUS’s plans to overturn the landmark case of Roe v. Wade were consequently revealed. With the Supreme Court set to release its formal decision this summer, the future of abortion access is weary in Michigan, which has a strict 1931 abortion law that could go into effect if Roe v. Wade is overturned. The University recently announced the creation of a task force to provide reproductive healthcare guidance and access to resources for the campus community. The Daily’s Statement Correspondent Emily Blumberg explores the importance of abortion within the UMich community and paints what that could look like moving forward.
