"[Study abroad] will advance your education. It will expand your sense of possibilities and it will make you more competitive for the jobs of the future. But more importantly it will also show you just how much we all have in common -- no matter where we live in the world."- First Lady Michelle Obama
Celebrate! Celebrar! Euphraino! November is International Education Month at Marygrove College, a celebration of study abroad programs sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education. “The actual week is November 15-18, but we’re extending it to the entire month because it is so important to us,” said Michelle Cade, MBA, Director of International Programs at Marygrove. “All month long, we’ll embrace the value of our cultural diversity, and get the word out about the many travel opportunities that exist right now for our students.” Why? Study abroad prepares students to become leaders in their chosen fields.

Globe-traveling elephant sculpture aims to start discussions about conservation.
DETROIT, Mich., Sept. 28, 2010 —In specific response to pressing local and global issues involving environmental sustainability and earth care, Marygrove College, with funding support from DTE Energy, will 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).
In keeping with Marygrove College’s strategic vision of fostering urban leadership to promote progressive and positive change, which was born out of and inspired by its historical commitment to the City of Detroit where it was founded over 80 years ago by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the College has named Ms. Brenda Price, former program director for the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation in Detroit and, until recently, also in Gary , Indiana, as Marygrove’s first Urban Leadership Fellow. The Urban Leadership Fellow will be an active learning member and catalyst for innovation with the various teams of faculty and staff involved in designing and leading the College’s Urban Leadership Initiatives. In addition, as this is an area of interest for Knight, the foundation has committed to making a planning grant to Marygrove to support this work.

Forget any visions of a guy walking about in a toga, sandals and flowing gray hair. He’s clean cut and very approachable, but you’d better have your mind ready for an unusual journey. Patterson is interested in argumentation theory, and his work in this area brings him in collaboration with philosophers around the globe.
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.
