Forever Unfinished: Ribbon Cutting and Gallery Walk

Join the exhibit creators for a ribbon cutting and a short tour of Forever Unfinished: Making and Remaking a Public University. The University of Michigan was founded in 1817 as a public institution, a concept for which there were few models. What makes a university public? What should it look like? Whom should it serve? Who should have access to its resources, and where should those resources come from?

NAHP is the result of over six years of small-group collaborations between students, atomic bombing survivors, citizens, NGOs, librarians, audio-visual technicians, professors, and universities around the world.
