Educators will tell you there is no substitute for hands-on learning. That’s why several high school students and their college student mentors from Marygrove College and Albion College are getting together each semester to study newly-restored wetlands just outside of Detroit.

This two-year collaboration, called the Third-90 Wetlands Restoration Program, allows University Prep High School, Detroit students to benefit from direct exposure to college students and faculty in a collegiate setting. University Prep Detroit prides itself on being a Third-90 high school, which means 90 percent of their students will graduate from high school, 90 percent of those will attend college, and 90 percent of those college students will earn a degree. This effort is particularly important in the City of Detroit, where high school graduation rates are among the lowest in the country.

Marygrove College’s Art Department understands how small steps can sometimes lead to larger ones. Together with the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM), they are helping people who have experienced great loss make that first stride to positive change and recovery-- by learning something new.

Twelve students have successfully completed their first course of digital media and video production, through a grant that helps the underserved in the city of Detroit. With the encouragement of Art Department Chair Jim Lutomski and Dean of Fine Arts Rose DeSloover, a syllabus was created by Tim Gralewski, Assistant Professor of Art.  Gralewski prepared a 14-week hands-on computer and video skills program, with projects that allow for self-expression and reflection.
