In 2006, Paul and Amy Blavin endowed a University of Michigan scholarship benefitting students from foster care in the state of Michigan admitted to the University. The Blavins' dedication to students from foster care extends beyond Michigan to their home state of Arizona where they support a similar scholarship.

"I was talking to a fraternity brother who was pretty upset about someone he assumed was flirting with his ex-girlfriend.

At that moment Jay realized he had been wasting unnecessary emotional energy by avoiding difficult conversations.
"Get involved, and get involved early! Attend as many campus events as you can, or else you will miss so many things that are unique to Michigan."
In our ongoing effort to create an environment that is healthy for all members of our community, the University of Michigan will become a smoke-free university. This will help ensure a healthier environment for faculty, staff, students and visitors.
