URC & Business Leaders for Michigan (BLM)

Business Leaders for Michigan (BLM) and the URC have been engaged as strategic partners, working together over the years to identify and advance opportunities to strengthen Michigan’s economy. A business executive roundtable made up of the state’s largest job providers and universities, BLM is focused on making Michigan a “Top Ten” state for jobs, personal income and a healthy economy. To help Michigan be more competitive and grow our economy, the Building a New Michigan Plan, a recent update to BLM’s Michigan Turnaround Plan, calls on business, community, university, government and public leaders to leverage and invest in our state assets. One significant asset which BLM prioritizes for investment is higher education to increase educational attainment of the state’s population and to accelerate innovation through growth in R&D.  Read More About BLM’s Michigan Plan
