In honor of our graduates, we present “Michigan Reflections,” a tribute to the University of Michigan and the natural beauty that surrounds its Ann Arbor home. While the image of the stadium is emblematic of the university’s energy and team spirit, the Huron River reflects the delicate balance between the built environment and that of nature. The blossoms of nineteen flowers native to the State of Michigan, each one representing a unit within the university, burst with the colors of the seasons, as the river overflows with the fullness of knowledge gained.
With each commencement, the university renews its commitment to creating a just and sustainable future through robust partnerships with universities and communities—regionally and throughout the globe. As our newest alumni enter the next chapter of their lives, we look forward to the positive impact they will make on the society we serve.
“Michigan Reflections” will be displayed on the Diag for the Commencement 2019 weekend. This 36’ x 16’original 3D work was created by U-M School for Environment and Sustainability.
