Former U-M President Jim Duderstadt?

Question Corner: August 2020

by Tim Athan

From the August, 2020 issue

Q. What is former U-M president Jim Duderstadt doing now?

A. James Duderstadt served as president from 1988 to 1996, living with his wife Anne in the president's house on South University. He started out as an engineering professor, and at age seventy-seven, he is a professor again. For his U-M profile he recently wrote:

"Although I occasionally teach a special topics course in the [Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences] department and they still use one of my textbooks, I'm afraid that my activities these days are more at the policy level. (Actually, I direct the University's program in science, technology and public policy.) However, since my office is right next door, I do keep an eye on the program to make certain it continues to thrive, and I'm always available to meet with and help out students."

The main library on North Campus is named the James and Anne Duderstadt Center (its nickname is "The Dude").
