From Kevin’s Desk: Leaders and best in the World! (9/13/19)

Dear Colleagues:

Happy Friday!

As you may have already seen in the Record earlier this week, U.S. News & World Report has ranked the University of Michigan in the top three best public universities in the nation, and U-M is one of only three public universities to rank in the top 21 universities worldwide by the Times Higher Education world rankings. How awesome! I hope you are as proud as I am to work at such an outstanding institution. I hope you also take pride in knowing that the university’s excellence wouldn’t be possible without all of you. Thank you for all your work to make us the leaders and the best. You truly Make Blue Go!

It’s time again for the annual Fall Strategic Supplier Show put on each year by our colleagues in Procurement Services. All staff are welcome to attend this event where you can check out new products, talk with supplier representatives, and meet with Procurement Services staff to learn about the benefits of strategic supplier contracts. Thank you to the entire Procurement Services team for providing this critical support for our campus community, stewarding our university resources and for bringing us a fun way to interact with our suppliers. Y’ALL ROCK!!

Thanks for everything you do to make this university among the very best in the world. Go Blue!!


With much appreciation and gratitude,
