Dance Department Chair sets a Foundation for Growth
Nine years ago, Jordeen Ivanov-Ericson's first graduating class as Department Chair at Marygrove School of Dance graduated one single student. Ivanov-Ericson definitely had her work cut out for her, as she sought to grow the program into what now amounts to two thriving dance companies: that's 43 majors to be exact, including ten very talented graduating seniors. When it comes to success, Ivanov-Ericson never misses her mark.

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. 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).
