Our Research

Documenting the University of Michigan’s Full History

The IHP is engaged in rigorous, scholarly research to gain a deeper and more complete understanding of the university’s history.

Our work is organized by four Frames, which are essential themes that provide a structure for the project’s wide-ranging research. Within each Frame are bounded, specific Project Sites, which focus the project’s research further.

New Project Sites are launched each year.
