Marygrove College Launches Summer Youth Entrepreneurship Program

Detroit, MI – June 15, 2015 – On Friday, July 3, Marygrove College will begin hosting a weekly Youth Entrepreneurship Program (Y.E.P. Detroit) designed to teach aspiring business owners between the ages of 6 and 14 about financial literacy, money management, and the essentials of becoming an entrepreneur. This is a five-week program that runs each Friday in July and costs $100.

Y.E.P. Detroit was designed and will be led by Sherika Cheney, M.Ed, in response to a still-sluggish job market, which is making it challenging for young people and recent college graduates to find financially-sustainable careers. “The Y.E.P. Detroit program is preemptive” said Cheney, “in that it teaches young people ages 6 to 14 how to develop, brand, and market their ideas, giving them access to transferrable skills that they will use in the university classroom and in the marketplace itself.”

Each Friday, grades 1-4 will meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon; Grades 5-8 will meet from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on the campus of Detroit’s historic Marygrove College. Students will engage in hands-on lessons and activities designed to teach creative idea generation, book keeping, marketing and branding, as well as skills and strategies to help them develop a mission statement.

These classes are part of Marygrove’s Kids College Camps sponsored by the college’s Academic Success Center and Continuing Education departments.

Marygrove welcomes Andrea Lee as its twenty-seventh in Marygrove's Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series.

Lee will deliver the Lillian and Don Bauder Lecture at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 17, 2015.

Fiction writer and journalist Andrea Lee will be the twenty-seventh guest in Marygrove’s Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series. She will deliver the Lillian and Don Bauder Lecture at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 17, 2015.

Lee is the author of a memoir: Russian Journal (1981), two novels: Sarah Phillips (1993) and Lost Hearts in Italy (2006), and a collection of short stories: Interesting Women (2002). She is a staff writer for the New Yorker magazine and has been published in Vogue, Time, and the New York Times, among other publications. Russian Journal won a National Book Award nomination in 1981; Lee is also the recipient of the Jean Stein Award, granted by the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters in 1984.

An expatriate, Lee spans the globe in her work, taking readers from the Soviet Union to France, the United States, and Italy. Publisher’s Weekly proclaims Lee’s work is “infused with international glamour and a particular brand of American world-weariness.” Susan Richards Shreve writes, “Andrea Lee’s authority as a writer comes of an unstinting honesty and a style at once simple and yet luminous.”

Her work considers race both within national boundaries and beyond, providing a poignancy of perspective enriched by these border crossings. Veronica Chambers asserts that “in Lee’s work, there is the power of race, both when it is present and when it is not.” Indeed, Lee’s exploration of racial assimilation and privilege reveals the often fraught complexity of contemporary racial identity. Donna Seaman notes that Lee “deftly decodes the tricky dynamics of sexual, racial, and cultural trespass,” and observes that in her work, “each encounter is choreographed with the deadly elegance and precision of a fencing match.”

Lee earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from Harvard University. A native of Philadelphia, she now lives in Turin, Italy with her husband and two children.

Ms. Lee will be introduced by the renowned scholar, Mary Helen Washington of the University of Maryland.

This series at Marygrove College is an annual event bringing a nationally-known author to our campus for a public lecture and seminar with students. It began when the late Frederick P. Currier, a former Marygrove College trustee, attended a reception on campus and remarked that he would like to bring a national writer to Marygrove for a weekend. Mr. Currier’s start-up check soon followed his suggestion, and in 1989 nearly 600 guests of the College heard Gloria Naylor inaugurate the series.

Since then, through the generous support of corporate donors, foundations, advertisers, friends, alumni, the Marygrove College Board of Trustees, and particularly S. Martin Taylor of DTE Energy, Dr. Lillian Bauder of MASCO Corporation, and the Lillian and Donald Bauder Endowment, we have been able to keep the Series free and accessible to the entire metropolitan Detroit community. To date, over 8,000 people have joined us at the Friday night public reading to hear outstanding writers share their work. The Friday evening reading/lecture is followed by a book signing.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, this event is free and open to the public.

Marygrove College and Gesu Catholic Church to host free tax foreclosure workshops

DETROIT, March 10, 2015— The Marygrove College Institute for Detroit Studies and Gesu Catholic Church are collaborating to host two free tax foreclosure workshops for Detroit and Wayne County residents. The first will be this Saturday, March 14, from 1-4 p.m. in the Main Dining Hall of the Madame Cadillac Building at Marygrove College, 8425 West McNichols Road, Detroit, MI 48221. The second will be on Saturday, March 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Social Hall of Gesu Catholic School, 17139 Oak Drive, Detroit, MI 48221.

Counseling will be provided by staff members from the United Community Housing Coalition and Michigan Legal Services. Marygrove students and Gesu parishioners are among the volunteers coordinating these workshops.

Although these workshops are intended for residents of the northwest Detroit communities near Marygrove and Gesu, any Wayne County residents who are facing foreclosure may attend. They should bring the following documents with them:

  • A copy of the deed or lease (if available)
  • A driver’s license or state identification card
  • A recent DTE bill, phone bill, or other letter with the resident’s name and address on it
  • Any and all correspondence from Wayne County


Of the 97,000 Wayne County properties subject to foreclosure this year, 62,000 are located in the city of Detroit; of these, more than 50,000 are occupied. Twenty-thousand more are in reversion (again in foreclosure after being bought at previous tax auctions, often leaving unsuspecting occupants in danger of losing their homes).

United Community Housing Coalition is a Michigan non-profit dedicated to the prevention of homelessness, and Michigan Legal Services is a Michigan non-profit anti-poverty advocacy group, both active in Detroit for the past 40 years. In 2003, at the behest of the late Detroit City Council President Maryann Mahaffey, they formed the Tax Foreclosure Prevention Project, through which they have helped well over 10,000 families keep their homes.
