Coleman was in Washington to speak at an alumni breakfast and while there held meetings with lawmakers, according to the report.
U-M head of research Stephen Forrest last month warned regents about the impact of the cuts on research.
"It is a meat cleaver-approach to solving budget problems,” he said. "We don't know what the future's going to look like. It's certainly not going to be very robust."
