MCubed is proudly based in the University of Michigan Office of Research (UMOR), and is part of the Third Century Initiative, launched by the offices of the President and Provost.

The 2014 MCubed Symposium highlighted the work of over 220 cubes that formed in MCubed's pilot cycle. We celebrated the successes, insights and discoveries that continue to emerge from trios of faculty collaborators and their students and postdocs, who used innovative approaches to tackle research and scholarly challenges from every corner of the U-M community.

As MCubed continues to grow and evolve, we are thrilled with the announcement that the Provost has granted MCubed funding to open a second round of cubing – MCubed 2.0! Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, enjoy highlights from the 2014 MCubed Symposium! You can also check out highlights from the 2013 inaugural MCubed Symposium.
