Paul and Ari will receive Doctor of Laws degrees

We’re thrilled and honored to announce that Zingerman’s founding partners will deliver the 2015 Spring Commencement address for the Ann Arbor campus on May 2nd at Michigan Stadium. Both Ari and Paul are University of Michigan alum.

• John Dingell, former U.S. Congressman for Michigan’s 12th Congressional District, Doctor of Laws.

• Sanford R. Robertson, pioneering venture capitalist, founding partner of Francisco Partners and U-M alumnus, Doctor of Laws.
