Michigan's fifteen public universities strongly believe in being accountable to the state's citizens. Accountability is achieved through a number of different openness and reporting systems.
MASU is pleased to point to a variety of accountability resources for the public to use to evaluate why an education at a public Michigan university is an affordable, effective investment. Further measures, more context, and analysis will come soon.
