 Office of Urban Leadership encourages campus community involvement 

DETROIT, Nov. 19, 2013 — Marygrove College today announced the addition of their BOLD microsite as an information resource for the College’s urban leadership initiative. BOLD, which stands for Building Our Leadership in Detroit, is a three-year, W.K. Kellogg Foundation-funded effort for Marygrove College to develop an urban leadership curriculum, and a cornerstone in the building of the College’s strategic vision of fostering urban leadership. 

The urban leadership vision, which was inspired and championed by current Marygrove President Dr. David J. Fike, focuses the College on strengthening its understanding and expertise on contemporary urban issues, as well as its understanding and capacity to develop leaders. It commits the College to invest in faculty development to enhance the intellectual capital of the institution, and to support mechanisms (curricular and co-curricular) that utilize intellectual capital to develop its students to be leaders in urban areas. A key component of the BOLD initiative is the establishment of the Office of Urban Leadership (OUL). The OUL helps ensure facilitation, planning, and implementation of an integrated portfolio to advance urban leadership both internal and external to the campus.  

The Office of Urban Leadership is encouraging involvement in urban leadership initiatives and believes that the microsite will serve as a place where people can go to become informed about the urban leadership vision, find opportunities to engage, and be inspired to share their own stories of how they are helping to make a difference in our community.

To visit the BOLD site, go to http://urbanleadership.marygrove.edu/

The purpose of the site is to provide:

1. An urban leadership resource center for faculty, staff and students

2. Insight into the urban leadership activities of students, faculty and staff

3. Information about upcoming events and ways to participate

“We are looking forward to what the future urban leadership initiatives will look like for students, the College and the community,” said Marygrove Director for the Office of Urban Leadership, Brenda Price. “That is why increasing awareness of the BOLD site is so important. We want to start with awareness as a means to foster engagement and involvement.”
