Dean of School of Information pledges $2.5M toward University of Michigan Victors for Michigan campaign

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The dean of the University of Michigan’s School of Information has pledged to donate $2.5 million to the school that he leads.

The Ann Arbor News reports that Jeffrey MacKie-Mason and his wife, Janet Netz, are announcing the gift today. The commitment counts toward the school’s Victors for Michigan fundraising campaign, which launches in November.

Mackie-Mason became dean of the School of Information in 2010. He says in a statement that they’re proud of the school’s “commitment to using information and technology to help create better lives.”

The donation will establish the Jeffrey MacKie-Mason Professor of Information, a tenured faculty position within the school.

Both MacKie-Mason and Netz are University of Michigan alumni.
