come together for
collaborative project
By ALICIA ADAMCZYK
Daily News Editor
Whether sitting with
100,000 other Michigan fans
or in the comfort of their own
living rooms, prospective vic-
tors watching Saturday's game
against Notre Dame have some
new commercials headed their

way.
After a year of brand research
and an additional year of pro-
duction, commercials featuring
students and scenes from across
campus were shot by the Uni-
versity's marketing team, with
the primary intention of attract-
ing prospective students to the
University.
The advertisements airing
Saturday cost $600,000 to pro-
duce, while the entire campaign,
which will be completed by
advertising agency Lowe Camp-
bell Ewald, also includes several

more expansive videos, web fea-
tures and other marketing mate-
rials, cost $1.1 million.
Matt Schlientz, the Univer-
sity's director of marketing, said
that the 30- and 60-second video
spots were created through the
collaboration of all the major
units on campus, ranging from
the Athletic Department to the
University of Michigan Health
System.
"It's a unique time in Michi-
gan's history where we have all
of these units, schools and col-
leges and departments coming

together," Schlientz said.
For its newest batch of
recruitment advertisements, the
University formed the Execu-
tive Marketing Council in the
winter of 2011. The council
includes heads from depart-
ments and units across campus
and was "intimately involved in
the production process."
The videos feature University
students in some of the better-
known locations on campus.

M-TRACS to split
$330,000 between
a dozen projects
By CHRISTY SONG
Daily Staff Reporter
The University is launching a new pro-
gram in the hopes of putting the future of
transportation on the right "TRAC."
The new initiative, Michigan Transla-
tional Research and Commercialization,
works to advance the future of transpor-
tation technologies and boost Michigan's
economy.
M-TRAC is a three-year program cre-
ated to fund researchers from the College
of Engineering and the U-M Transporta-
tion Research Institute to innovate trans-
portation.
Volker Sick, the University's associ-
ate vice president for research and an
M-TRAC oversight committee member,
said the program was developed as a result
of a public announcement made late last
year by the Michigan Economic Develop-
ment Corporation. The organization invit-
ed universities within the state to compete
in finding a project that would enhance
current transportation technologies.
"The main goal of M-TRAC is to help
