The University of Michigan is a public research university in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was founded in 1817 as the first university to be established in the state of Michigan and was designed to serve as an institution of higher learning for people from all over the state. The university was created by an act of the Michigan Territorial Legislature with a goal of providing educational opportunities to residents in what had been a frontier area at that time.

In addition, there are campuses in Flint, Dearborn and downtown Detroit (intended for graduate students). Some classes are conducted off-campus at other satellite facilities around southeast Michigan including Grand Blanc Community College (near Flint), Troy University Center (in Troy), Macomb Community College (in Warren), Wayne State University’s McNichols Campus (in Detroit), Eastern Michigan University’s Ann Arbor campus (formerly known as A2 West Campus) which offers engineering degree programs through EMU’s School of Engineering & Applied Sciences;and Washtenaw Community College’s north Ann Arbor campus which offers various degrees through WCETM program; while some other classes are offered online via distance learning technology.

Public universities are funded by the government and open to all students. They’re also not-for-profit and regionally accredited. Because they don’t have to make money for investors, public universities are able to keep tuition costs down for their students.
While several of the nation’s largest and most prestigious private universities have endowments exceeding $1 billion (Harvard University has an endowment of over $37 billion), most public universities can only dream about such funding sources. In fact, many public campuses don’t even have enough money in their coffers to fund construction projects; they rely heavily on state funding instead!
