Education
JD, cum laude
Class of 1977

The University of Michigan, founded in 1817, celebrates a long and distinguished history. It was in 1787 that the Northwest Territorial Ordinance provided public land for this and other Midwestern universities and established a tradition of respect for excellence in higher education. Three Native American nations—the Ojibwa (Chippewa), Odawa (Ottawa), and Bodewadini (Potawatomi)—subsequently granted certain lands for use of the University of Michigan and by the end of the 19th century, Michigan was the largest and most generously supported public university in America and already a leader in graduate education. The University of Michigan Law School, one of the oldest law schools in the nation, was founded in 1859. But unlike other highly selective law schools established in that era, admission was never restricted to the privileged. When Gabriel Hargo graduated from the Law School in 1870, Michigan—then the largest law school in the country—became the second American university to confer a law degree on an African American. That same year, Michigan was the first major law school to admit a woman, and in 1871, graduate Sarah Killgore became the first woman with a law degree in the nation to be admitted to the bar; by 1890, Michigan had graduated more women than any other law school. That commitment to access and diversity joined an equally powerful commitment to excellence, which continues to this day.

Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture is a school and residency program in Maine for emerging visual artists. Characterized by risk-taking, mentorship, and peer-to-peer exchange, it brings together a talented, diverse group of artists for an experience that spurs creative growth and dynamic interaction between artists from different backgrounds. Since 1946, Skowhegan has given artists an opportunity to push the boundaries of their practices and refine their individual voices. Neither a traditional school nor a retreat, Skowhegan's 9-week summer program, held on a rural 350-acre campus, provides artists with an extended period of independent and collaborative work. Participants and faculty live and work side by side and the assembled community represents a broad range of artistic perspectives, modes of practice, and professional experiences. In this safe environment, artists are encouraged to take risks, free from the expectations of the marketplace and academia. Alumni report that Skowhegan marks a pivotal turning point in their practice and that the impact of the summer extends far beyond the session itself. Skowhegan's success lies in its ability to identify and nurture committed and promising artists who are selected for potential, not financial ability or educational pedigree. This critical policy is made possible by a robust fellowship program that allows Skowhegan to provide financial aid to any artist in need.
