An expansion of the health care system and new initiatives to promote the arts and enhance school safety are among the many notable achievements featured in the University of Michigan’s annual report.

The fiscal year 2023 report, now available online, underscores that the university remains financially strong and ““well positioned for the future.”

President Santa J. Ono, whose March 7 inauguration as the university’s 15th president was highlighted in the report, acknowledged U-M’s “strong financial foundation” as critical to carrying out the university’s mission.

“The University of Michigan stands as a beacon of excellence, marked by world-class academic programs, cutting-edge research and one of the top-rated health systems in the nation,” Ono wrote.

“Underlying all that we do is our vital mission: an enduring commitment to serving the people of Michigan and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and applying knowledge, art and academic values, and in developing leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future.”

Some of the many items in the report include:

  • The U-M Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention and the state finalized a $1 million contract to create a statewide initiative designed to enhance school safety and prevent school violence.
