In her annual state-of-the-university address given to the 2008 Faculty Senate Assembly, U-M President Mary Sue Coleman used the AOSS 583 class project to bring the Internet to rural Africa as an example of the "Michigan Difference." AOSS 583 is taught each spring by Thomas Zurbuchen, AOSS professor and Director of the CoE Center for Entrepreneurship. Last spring project has garnered the interest of Google and recently three satellite stations have been shipped to Africa.
