Big ideas that are born in the state of Michigan don't just stay in Michigan. Michigan ideas benefit the world. They spark revolutions. They build industries and even nations. They transform our way of life. It's the ability to attract, educate, and retain the people who give birth to these ideas that is our greatest shared asset. It's the rising talent, and the companies who employ that talent, that we can leverage, together, to ensure our future.

The biggest problems we face as a society don't conveniently set themselves up to be knocked down by one-source solutions. Problems don't know what discipline they are supposed to fall under; they are just problems. We can bring to bear the intellectual power of 100 programs that are ranked in the top 10, to approach problems from every angle and every perspective.
