The Mary A. Rackham Institute (MARI) has a long history at the University of Michigan, dating back to 1935. The Speech Clinic (now the University Center for Language and Literacy (UCLL)) had already been established when it became part of MARI in 1936-37. The University Psychological Clinic was founded in 1938 as part of the MARI, and the University Center for Child and Family (UCCF) evolved from a prior counseling unit to become part of the institute in 1987. These are MARI's current centers.

Since its establishment more than 75 years ago, MARI has been providing training to graduate and postgraduate students in the delivery of services to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families with mental health difficulties, language disabilities, and literacy challenges.
