Meet the future
The world needs bold leaders ready to tackle urgent environmental challenges. At SEAS, we say “bring it on.” We’re the architects of a new tomorrow: transforming research into action to create a healthier planet for all.
It's time to shape our EV future
The North American International Auto Show in Detroit and the annual observation of Climate Week drew to a close over the weekend, highlighting the synergy between mobility and climate action, which are deeply intertwined. The emissions from transportation recently outpaced the emissions from energy generation, meaning that progress in both areas is critical to moving forward in a low-carbon manner. Now is the time to focus on our autonomous and electrified future, says Liesl Eichler Clark, U-M's director of climate action engagement.

Game changers in action
Madeline Walker Miller, PhD student, CEO of NexTiles LLC
“I started my business because most people understand the negative impacts that plastic has on the environment, but a lot of people don’t realize what fabric waste is doing to our air, water, and soil resources.”
Kiley Adams, dual-degree student, SEAS and Michigan Medicine
“I immediately realized that the trip was totally inaccessible to current and future classmates with mobility impairments, and I thought that having a mobility device that folks who have an impairment could use that makes being on trails accessible is a pretty easy fix.”
Mike Kaminski senior data solutions, First Street Foundation
“For people to care about something, you need to show them how it affects them personally—and nothing gets more personal than people’s homes, which is often their biggest financial asset.”
