    What interested you in the Road Scholar tour?

    I envision the Road Scholar tour will show me parts of Michigan still unknown to me. I would like to meet Michiganders from all walks of life, learn about their daily ecosystem, about their stressors and successes. I am also looking forward to learn about my fellow Road Scholars to exchange ideas and experiences with them.
    – Van Nieuwstadt

    The Michigan Road Scholars Tour — an annual five-day traveling seminar that takes U-M faculty through the state — increases mutual knowledge and understanding between the university and the people and communities of Michigan.
