Marygrove’s newly-elected student government cabinet attended the American Student Government Association (ASGA) training conference in Orlando this summer to prepare for the coming school year. The cabinet is the first elected student body government at Marygrove College in two years—an enormous source of pride for the college—and especially for Garth E. Howard, Director of Student Life. “The number of undergraduate students who voted in this election exceeded our expectations…that’s outstanding!” he said. “The students have been heard—they wanted representation, and they worked hard to achieve it.”

When the framers of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights penned the first draft directly after World War II, the definition of peace took on new meaning. Global peace was defined in the most basic and general of ways—a way that allowed the western world to breathe collective sighs of relief from totalitarian barbarism and expansionism.

It’s safe to say that the authors, such as Eleanor Roosevelt, could not have envisioned how the meaning of peace would evolve—or how oppressive forces would find other, more insidious ways to seep into our world in the form of civil rights abuses, the privatization of war, or Internet security breaches. Sixty-three years later, there is a new peace declaration germinating at the United Nations (UN)—and Marygrove is taking an active part in its birth.

Two years ago, the thick border of trees surrounding Marygrove College was thinned out. By virtue of disease or age, many trees came down, revealing the stately campus for all to see, for the first time in years. The metaphor for change and revelation is undeniable for Kalimah Johnson, LMSW, ACSW, who grew up in Detroit but had never seen beyond the trees: “I remember driving by and thinking, oh, what a gorgeous campus! I’d like to learn more about Marygrove.” Soon after, Johnson was recruited as Assistant Professor of Social Work, and began to break down some barriers of her own. 

A former community organizer, Johnson brings with her a host of contacts who love to help people, especially women. In the spirit of our founder and sponsor, the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary—she is a fierce advocate, shedding light on important women’s issues, like sexual assault and abuse. Johnson joined forces with another Marygrove champion of women’s rights, Darcy L. Brandel, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of English, to co-sponsor the third and most successful Take Back the Night–Detroit (TBTN-D) event, an evening dedicated to sexual assault awareness.

Recovery is a journey. “It takes courage and resolve to face the challenge of re-focusing your life,” says Diane McMillan, LMSW, Associate Professor of Social Work at Marygrove College. “People in recovery are often compelled to help others who struggle, which makes them excellent candidates for the Certified Addictions Counselor (CAC) program here at Marygrove.” McMillan has helped lead a successful collaboration between Marygrove’s Division of Continuing Education and Career Enhancement, Department of Social Work and Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM) since September, 2009.
