About Michigan Today

Michigan Today is published online 10 times per year by the Michigan News office. The digital magazine is emailed to about 300,000 readers worldwide.

Michigan Today is one of several alumni publications produced by U-M. Each school and college offers publications for its graduates (see Publications & Resources), and the U-M Alumni Association sends its magazine, Alumnus, to paid members of the association. Michigan Today fits into this mix as the one publication to address all alumni, regardless of school, college or association affiliation. We try to speak to the entire alumni community, and to connect our readers across disciplines.

Send us letters to the editor about the material we publish, alumni notes about your latest achievements and your memories for our U-M history section.
