I have some good news to share with you about our urban leadership agenda. Marygrove College recently received a grant award from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to plan a nationally-recognized urban leadership curriculum centered on fostering positive community change piloted in Detroit. The award is for the fiscal period Jan. 1, 2009 — Dec. 31, 2009. As you know, Marygrove College’s commitment to fostering urban leadership is inspired by the values and beliefs of its founder and sponsor, the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) and by the social teachings of the Catholic Church. These teachings direct that we encourage leadership which promotes respect for human dignity, encourages earth-care and sustainable communities, and seeks justice for people and communities who suffer from the actions of more powerful groups. Our focus on developing leadership for urban communities stems from our history of commitment to the Detroit metropolitan region, an area which exhibits rich expressions of culture, inspiring examples of human and community resilience, as well as some of the starkest urban challenges to be found in this country.
