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.

Marygrove College’s Institute for Arts Infused Education (IAIE), has been trying to get computers into classrooms for a long time because the college believes it’s critical for children to receive a solid education using the arts and modern technology. Now, thanks to the federal program, Computers for Learning (CFL) and several corporate partners, their vision has become a reality.

The CFL program was founded by the federal government to support their mandate for a computer in every K-12 classroom nationwide so that every child has the chance to learn how to use modern technology. Marygrove College’s Institute for Arts Infused Education aims to improve educational achievement, create innovative models for teaching and learning, and promote the systemic integration of the arts into the K-12 core curriculum.
