Marygrove’s Science and Mathematics Department continues to grow as it welcomes Dr. Jennifer Tsui (pronounced “Sway”), a Michigan native who has explored the science realm as a student and researcher. Tsui will join Marygrove’s faculty as a full-time science professor for the 2012 Winter Semester.
Although Dr. Tsui has spent many years doing research, she prefers sociable environments, such as a classroom with her students.
I like more personal interaction than what normally happens in research," she said. "I want a more immediate impact on people, where research can take more time before you actually impact people’s lives. I spent a lot of time in little rooms with microscopes.”
Beatty is the author of three novels: The White Boy Shuffle (1996), Tuff (2000), and Slumberland (2008), and two books of poetry: Big Bank Take Little Bank (1991) and Joker, Joker, Deuce (1994). He also edited Hokum: An Anthology of African-American Humor (2006). He was the recipient of the first Grand Poetry Slam Championship of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in 1990.

Join us for an engaging perspective from two speakers —Kiva donor and a Kiva recipient. Detroit is the first Kiva City in the United States, a program where Kiva works with community organizations to provide microloans to small businesses. Kiva Detroit is the product of a partnership between Michigan Corps, ACCION USA, Knight Foundation and Kiva International.
co-chair of the Kiva Detroit Board became involved with Kiva while he was a professor at the University of Michigan. An entrepreneur, a pastor, and former elected political official, he also serves on the Knight Foundation Advisory Board.
co-chair of Kiva Detroit, is an inaugural recipient of a Kiva Detroit loan, which is being used to launch Thrive Detroit Street newspaper.

What used to be a dusty, cramped room for storage will now be filled with hope, healing, and laughter. Marygrove’s Women’s Center, now established in room 030 of the Liberal Arts Building, offers a sanctuary of resources, from assault crisis hotlines and Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/Questioning (LGBTQ) support networks to information on academic curriculum and programming in women’s studies. Where stacked chairs once collected dust, now sit several shelves of books available for check-out, from history to self-help. Two cozy couches and lounge chairs have replaced the area once reserved for cluttered desks and printers. The once barren walls now wear the proud artwork of female artists, including a cycling display of canvas paintings.
“We envision that the Women's Center might come to be known among students as a kind of oasis where they can stop by to browse and stay to study regardless of their majors, in a safe, rigorous, and supportive environment,” said Darcy Brandel, assistant professor of English.
The Center is open to men and women from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Work-study students, like Veronica Johnson will greet you with a big, warm smile, offering aid and resources. Johnson, a social work major, has a drive to help those who need it most.
