"Through the XR Initiative, U-M will explore additional curricular and co-curricular offerings, research opportunities, and multi-institutional and industry collaborations," said James Hilton, vice provost for academic innovation.

“XR is exciting because it has the potential to touch all of the disciplines at Michigan,” he said. “While it will initially be physically located in the Duderstadt Center, in order to take advantage of the VR technology and expertise that is already there, the scope of the initiative is campuswide and builds on Michigan’s long-standing commitment to continually ask, ‘What’s next?’ — to experiment with leading edge technology to discover how it may change the ways we learn, create and educate in our third century.”
