Without a doubt the U-M athletic program is a big business, and one of the few in major college sports that is financially self-sustaining (and then some). So it’s no surprise that the new Athletic Director has a big business background – but also a comfort to the Wolverine faithful that he has personal experience in both U-M varsity sports and University governance. In his first visit to our club, David Brandon will discuss Michigan athletic traditions, the current state of the U-M Athletic Department, and the future of Michigan sports.

Late one October night in 1960 on the steps of the Michigan Union, Senator John F. Kennedy gave a campaign speech that led to creation of the Peace Corps. Launching the signature program of the Kennedy administration, it ignited the idealism of a generation and is a vivid memory for everyone who was there and a point of pride for everyone affiliated with the University. The full story of this historic event will be told by the Director of U-M’s International Center, which hosts the University’s Peace Corps Office.
