“I’d never seen anything like the list of resources that the DMC was promising”


“You have to come up into the space to really get a true appreciation for the wealth of resources and the cutting-edge technologies – what it can do for your research, for your pedagogy, for your professional and personal development. No pamphlet can describe or capture what the DMC has to offer you”

Prof. Robin R. Means Coleman shares what the unique resources in the Duderstadt Center can mean for teaching and research.


Dr. Coleman was formerly (2005-2018) U-M Professor of Afroamerican and African Studies, Professor of Communication Studies, LSA; and associate dean of Social Sciences, Rackham Graduate School. As of 2021, she is vice president and associate provost for diversity and inclusion, chief diversity officer, and the Ida B. Wells and Ferdinand Barnett Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Northwestern University
