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.

As part of Marygrove’s larger focus on urban leadership, the College has formed what is known as the Marygrove Urban Agenda initiative (MUA). MUA was developed to help local high school students develop leadership skills to find ways they can have a positive impact on the communities where they live and go to school.

With help from a grant from Campus Compact and program leader Marygrove professor Tal Levy, fifty students from Mumford and Cody high schools came to Marygrove to discuss the concept of peer mediation as a way to find solutions to the problems of learning in their schools—specifically violence.

As these students are trained in peer mediation, they learn practical ways they can take control and manage difficult and/or violent situations. These “peer mediators,” then discuss the ideas with other students to advance the concept.

Levy’s inspiration for the MUA evolved from a Wayne State University Urban Agenda (UA) program. The original UA program was created by his mentor and friend, the late Otto Feinstein, a political scientist and activist for social justice from Wayne State University, Levy’s alma mater. The UA program was originally an exercise in political and civic literacy—it called for enhancing students’ understanding of the political process by participating in political gatherings with students from other colleges and universities.

In the year since it was formed, Beta Upsilon students have accomplished much and Marygrove professors Dr. Don Rizzo and Dr. Mary Lynam, co-advisors for Beta Upsilon, are proud. “We’re excited,” said Rizzo. “Four of our students (Jay Biernat, Carla Sims, Lloyd Weishap and Semaj Wilson) presented their senior seminar research projects at the Sigma Zeta National Convention this past March at Campbellsville University in Campbellsville, Kentucky, which is quite an honor.”

To hear Jessica Knott and Darrius Washington sing is to hear the voices of angels. And fortunately, these angelic sounds will carry themselves all the way to Italy this summer, thanks to an opportunity for Knott and Washington to perform in the 2010 Vocal Program at the Amalfi Coast Music & Arts Festival in Amalfi, Italy, July 14 – 26, which was funded, in part, by a generous donation from an anonymous Marygrove alumni donor.

They were selected to perform in a summer opera production of Mozart's “The Magic Flute” as well as additional solo performances in select opera scenes—an incredible honor, as there were an unexpectedly high number of applicants this year, making the normally complex audition review process even more selective than usual. Washington will perform the roles of Armored Man/Priest and Knott will perform the role of 2nd Spirit.

Marygrove College president to speak at national forum will discuss educational access for immigrant students

Dr. David J. FikeDr. David J. Fike, Marygrove College’s president, will join a panel of college presidents to discuss the role leaders in higher education play in bringing about social change at a summit organized by The National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good and The Kellogg Fellows Leadership Alliance (KFLA) to be held April 26-28 in Washington, D.C.

The summit was organized to address the lack of comprehensive institutional policy, practices, and public understanding regarding educational access for immigrant students. It aims to foster increased public understanding of the importance of a policy agenda that addresses higher education policies as they relate to immigrant students in the U.S. It also intends to lay the groundwork for a long-term, multi-interest collaboration among higher education institutions, national associations, foundations and policy leaders to advocate for institutional, state and national policy change.

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.

Marygrove MustangsMarygrove is adding track and field as well as men’s and women’s golf to its fast-growing intercollegiate athletic program. The addition brings the total number of intercollegiate sports on the campus to eleven. Last year the College added five sports to its existing men and women’s basketball programs: men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross country, and women’s volleyball.

The Track and Field program will be only the second intercollegiate track program in the City of Detroit as well as Wayne County. Marygrove hopes to draw more students to its campus from the large pool of track talent in metro Detroit.

The new program will be headed by current cross country coach, Lee Shaw. Shaw brings a wealth of knowledge to the program and will play a major factor in the success of the College’s distance runners.
