Student services participates in Wolverine Express

Gerry Kreiner, Admissions Representative for Taubman College’s Student Services team, participated in an educational outreach program named, Wolverine Express, by giving a hands-on lesson to an art class at Osborn High School in Detroit on November 20, 2013.

In its 4th year, Wolverine Express assembles diverse teams of University of Michigan faculty, staff, and students to travel via bus to visit select high schools located in under resourced areas across the state of Michigan. While at the high schools, faculty, staff and students participate in presentations designed to promote academic success and college aspiration while also sharing information about their U-M experiences.

Wolverine Express is organized by U-M’s Center for Educational Outreach. The Center for Educational Outreach attempts to engage communities across the state for the purpose of applying the scholarly resources of the University of Michigan where needed to promote academic excellence at the pre-college level, to encourage students to value higher education, to stimulate college participation and success rates in the state, and to attract a well-prepared diverse student body to the University of Michigan.
