Sage and the university administration have said that none of the speculation is true. The Council of Regents did not vote on whether to reopen the campus, and the $30 million gift contract for Sage`s $30 million donation — to create a diabetes research center — was signed before the summer. Sage told Inside Higher Ed that he and McKinley`s CEO estimate that only 2 percent of their tenants in Ann Arbor are college students, and very few of them are students. Sage denied that he would take a financial hit if the students didn`t come back. In 2009, the university signed an agreement to purchase a facility previously owned by Pfizer. The acquisition covers more than 170 hectares (0.69 km2) of land and 30 large buildings with an area of approximately 150,000 square metres and 37,000 square metres of administrative space. At the time of the agreement, the university`s intentions for space were not defined, but the expectation was that the new space would allow the university to accelerate its research and ultimately employ more than 2,000 people.  The WMU has partnered with many institutions to allow a smooth transfer for students starting their university careers at a community college. The transfer guides offer a specific selection of courses for students who wish to follow certain majors. They explain the requirements and conditions of each program.
Joint agreements are formal documents signed by the WMU and a partner institution for certain major-designed routes. Students should use these tools in agreement with their community colleges and WMU consulting teams to take the shortest route to graduate with the lowest costs. Lyndon B. Johnson spoke as a keynote speaker at the university of Michigan`s opening ceremony in 1964.  In the 1960s, the university campus was the scene of numerous protests against the Vietnam War and the university administration. On March 24, 1965, a group of U-M faculty members and 3,000 students organized the country`s first Teach-in, led by the faculty, to protest U.S. policy in Southeast Asia.    In response to a series of sit-ins in 1966 by Voice, the campus party of Students for a Democratic Society, the U-M government banned sit-ins. In response, 1,500 students participated in an hour-long sit-in in the administrative building, now known as the LSA building.
