Dance Department Chair sets a Foundation for Growth

DanceNine years ago, Jordeen Ivanov-Ericson's first graduating class as Department Chair at Marygrove School of Dance graduated one single student. Ivanov-Ericson definitely had her work cut out for her, as she sought to grow the program into what now amounts to two thriving dance companies: that's 43 majors to be exact, including ten very talented graduating seniors. When it comes to success, Ivanov-Ericson never misses her mark.

In support of this Urban Leadership Vision and in specific response to pressing local and global issues involving environmental sustainability and earth care, Marygrove has embarked on a project to host Nomkhubulwane (Nom-koo-bull-WAH-nee, Zulu for Mother Earth), an elephant sculpture created by South African sculptor Andries Botha. This life-size sculpture, made of galvanized steel and recycled truck tires, is traveling around the world to raise awareness about how people can creatively address issues caused by the expanding human ecological footprint. Nomkhubulwane is one of 17 elephants on display globally by the Human Elephant Foundation (www.humanelephant.org).

Amid the growl of Caterpillar tractors and the intense heat of Detroit's summer sun, the Marygrove College campus is undergoing a transformation the likes of which it hasn't seen in years. That's because construction has just been completed on a new soccer field to support the College's expanding Athletics Program.

The project represents a commitment by the College to environmental sustainability while providing a new and exciting on-campus activity for Marygrove's athletes, the campus community and the surrounding neighborhood.
