Transportation

Ann Arbor is located about 35 min from Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), Michigan’s largest airport. The Michigan Flyer is a direct bus line that runs regularly 7 days a week between downtown Ann Arbor and the airport. Amtrak’s Wolverine train line also conveniently runs through downtown between the Detroit and Chicago metros. We have an extensive public transportation network called TheRide that runs throughout the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti (pronounced IP-si-lantee) area. The University of Michigan also has its own fleet of buses along 12 routes that are available to the general public for free without an ID or pass. For more information on parking at the university and other transportation options, please visit the U of M Facilities’ Logistics, Transportation & Parking website.

Land Acknowledgement

The University of Michigan, named for Michigami, the world's largest freshwater system and located in the Huron River watershed, is indebted to the Wyandot and Anishinaabeg, the Three Fires People — the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodewéwadmik (Potawatomi). These peoples are traditionally the inhabitants and stewards of this region. In 1817, these nations ceded land in the Treaty at the Foot of the Rapids (also known as the Treaty of Fort Meigs), with the understanding that their children would be provided with educational opportunities in perpetuity. Proceeds from the sale of this land funded the origins of the university, and records indicate that the university has not realized the treaty's promise. Since the treaty was signed, few or no Native Americans have been enrolled at the university.

The University of Michigan Code4Lib Local Planning Committee acknowledges that our university stands, like almost all property in the United States, on lands obtained in unconscionable ways from indigenous peoples. This acknowledgement does not absolve or diminish the advantages gained through white colonialism and violence. Instead we hold ourselves and our universities accountable through how we work, live, research, teach, learn, curate, recruit, and collaborate. We also consider, as educators and information professionals, how the digital technologies we use every day — their infrastructures, design, and environmental impact — have been influenced by the legacy of colonialism and white privilege.

Pronunciation Guide

For a guide to pronouncing the names of the nations listed in the above land acknowledgment, please see the pronunciation guide under Northern Illinois University's land acknowledgement.

Additional Resources

Acknowledgements alone are insufficient. We recognize that they are only the beginning and that there is more work we must do. The following articles and guides are starting places for learning more:

Reception Details

When: Tuesday, May 14, 2024

Note: All attendees are invited to join us for a complimentary reception Tuesday evening at the Fowling Warehouse. What is Fowling? Fowling is The Original Football Bowling Pin Game. It started as a one-lane mashup of football and bowling while tailgating at the 2001 Indy 500. It’s as easy as throwing a football at ten bowling pins until someone knocks them all down.
