2017 Road Scholars tour
Members of the 2017 Michigan Road Scholars test their skills on the shooting simulator at the Camp Grayling military training facility in northern Michigan. Simulation technologies allow real world, cost-effective training that can track progress of individual soldiers. The stop was part of this year's five-day tour of Michigan, which took place last week and is designed to familiarize members of U-M's faculty and staff with places the majority of our students call home, encourage university service to the public, and suggest ways faculty can help address state and local issues.

Titled "Bent of Tau Beta Pi," this bronze artifact located near the west entrance of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Building on North Campus was a gift of the Gamma Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, an engineering honor society, in memory of Arthur Dearth Moore, professor of electrical engineering from 1916-65. The Record periodically highlights pieces of public art at U-M. Learn more about this piece, or browse an online collection of public artworks.
