Marygrove College Appoints Rose Gorman as First Tuxedo Project Residential Fellow

Rose GormanDETROIT, MI, May 17, 2017—Marygrove College today announced that it has named Rose Gorman as the first residential fellow of the Tuxedo Project. This appointment will be effective August 15.

Made possible in part by a $150,000 John S. and James L. Knight Foundation grant, Marygrove and The Tuxedo Project Detroit, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt charitable organization, are working together to transform 7124 Tuxedo Street in Detroit into a writer's residence and community literary center. This is the once-abandoned and blighted childhood home of Stephen Henderson, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Detroit Free Press Editorial Page Editor.

“We knew that the Residential Fellow had to have a dynamic personality as well as an extensive background in community engagement,” said Dr. Darcy Brandel, chair of Marygrove’s English and Modern Languages Department. “Rose’s experience and her commitment to serving the needs of traditionally marginalized groups make her an ideal fit for both Marygrove and the Tuxedo neighborhood.”

Gorman will teach classes at Marygrove College, live in the restored house at 7124 Tuxedo, run the literary center there, and provide outreach and resources to the community.

Gorman has served as Community Engagement Manager for the national oral history organization StoryCorps and as Program Director at the NY Writers Coalition, a community-based writing organization dedicated to working with underserved populations: youth, seniors, women, the LGBTQ community, those who have been incarcerated, homeless individuals, and immigrants. She holds a Master of Arts degree in literature with a concentration in creative writing from Binghamton University, State University of New York (SUNY), and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from St. John’s University.

DETROIT, MI, May 19, 2017—Marygrove College has been named as one of the Best Online Human Resource Master’s Degrees in the most recent ranking of Human Resource MBA.

In order to be considered, each school must be an accredited school with online programs aligning to the Society of Human Resource Management’s recommended guidelines for a quality HR education. They were then ranked by their average graduate tuition rate as indicated on the NCES College Navigator database website.

“This prestigious ranking by Human Resource MBA is very much appreciated,” said Professor Jerry van Rossum, chair of the Business Division at Marygrove. “Students complete 12 courses, including three core courses and nine electives relating specifically to HR management. Courses are each seven weeks, with two or three different courses offered each semester. Most students complete the program in just two years of study. Courses are taught by faculty with advanced graduate degrees and significant experience in the field of human resource management.”

Marygrove College, ranked 9th, was recognized in part for offering an online accredited Master’s in Human Resource Management for both experienced and inexperienced HR professionals. “The schools making the list of top 50 best online Master’s in Human Resources degree programs are time-tested programs known for the quality of their curriculum offerings and the effectiveness of their graduates,” said Human Resources MBA.

MaryGrove-Logo FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Marygrove College, a Catholic, liberal arts college, is committed to both teaching diversity and respecting the diversity of its students, faculty and staff.  Rooted in the teachings of Jesus, the Holy Scriptures, its Catholic tradition and Catholic Social Teachings, we stand against any form of discrimination based on race, ethnicity and religion.  Therefore we stand with refugees and immigrants who are prevented from pursuing freedom from persecution in the face of hostilities and those seeking a better life for their families who are barred from entering the United States.   We base our stance on the Principles of Catholic Social Teaching, especially these two:

·Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
A basic moral test is how our most vulnerable members are faring. In a society marred by deepening divisions between rich and poor, our tradition recalls the story of the Last Judgment (Mt 25:31-46) and instructs us to put the needs of the poor and vulnerable first.

·Solidarity
We are one human family whatever our national, racial, ethnic, economic, and ideological differences. We are our brothers and sisters keepers, wherever they may be. Loving our neighbor has global dimensions in a shrinking world. At the core of the virtue of solidarity is the pursuit of justice and peace. Pope Paul VI taught that if you want peace, work for justice (Pope Paul VI Day of Peace address, January 1, 1972). The Gospel calls us to be peacemakers. Our love for all our sisters and brothers demands that we promote peace in a world surrounded by violence and conflict.
Pope Francis has been an outspoken advocate for refugees and immigrants.  Before President Trump signed his Executive Order banning refugees and visitors from seven predominately Muslim countries, Pope Francis said that it was hypocritical to "call yourself a Christian and chase away a refugee."
http://www.snopes.com/pope-francis-condemn-trump-travel-ban/

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Archbishop José Gomez, the Vice President, said in their statement. “The bond between Christians and Muslims is founded on the unbreakable strength of charity and justice,”
http://www.americamagazine.org/politics-society/2017/01/30/responding-trumps-ban-top-catholic-bishops-pledge-solidarity-muslim

Detroit Catholic Archbishop Allen Vigneron released a statement acknowledging that elected officials have a duty to not only enforce laws but ensure “the dignity of the human person, the protection of families, and a generosity commensurate with the blessings our nation has received.” The head of Metro Detroit’s estimated 1.3 million Catholics added: “Therefore, our immigration system must treat migrants and refugees with the same dignity as native-born citizens. It must recognize the fundamental wrong of separating families, particularly when children are involved. And it must not be blind to the rich contribution made — in the past and in the present — by men and women who have come to this country as migrants or refugees.”http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/religion/2016/12/09/support-vigneron/95233490/

Marygrove College stands in solidarity with refugees and immigrants of all faiths and prays that by example and deed, we, as an institution, may be a witness to the faith we profess.  To that end, I signed on to the ACCU’s (Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities) Statement on Executive Order dated January 29, 2017.  For your reference, you may find the full text of the ACCU statement by clicking here: http://www.accunet.org/files/Press_Media/2017-Executive-Order-Press-Release.pdf.

Restorative Justice the Focus of Marygrove’s New Online Undergrad Program

DETROIT, MI, July 26, 2016—Marygrove College announced today its new online Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice degree, a program with a restorative-justice emphasis designed for current or aspiring criminal justice professionals. The program is currently accepting applications for the fall semester, which begins September 6, 2016.

“In this time of crisis, where there is distrust between law enforcement and the community,” said Marygrove College Provost Dr. Sally Welch, “our institution is prepared to help bring about peace and reconciliation through its online Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice based on Restorative Justice principles.”

Restorative Justice is a victim-centered response to crime that views criminal behavior not as a violation against the state, but one against people and relationships. As a result, those who practice restorative justice respond to crime by transforming the traditional relationship between communities and government, giving all stakeholders—both the victim and perpetrator—the opportunity to identify and take steps to repair harm.

Marygrove College’s Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice is offered completely online and has been designed for those interested in law enforcement, corrections, parole, probation, fire science, and non-profit careers.

To learn more about Marygrove College’s Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice program, visit https://www.marygrove.edu/academics/undergraduate-academics/undergraduate-programs/criminal-justice.html, call (313) 927-1240, or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

DETROIT, MI, July 25, 2016— Marygrove College announced today that the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has acknowledged that its Master of Arts in Human Resource Management degree has renewed its alignment with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.  The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM to define the minimum HR content areas that should be studied by HR students at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Dr. Jerry Van Rossum, business department chair, said, “Aligning our graduate Human Resource Management program with SHRM curriculum guidelines assures our students that our program is current with the latest trends in the practice of human resource management and professional education.  We believe our graduates are even better equipped to add value as HR professionals.”

With 250,000 members, the Society for Human Resource Management is a globally recognized HR professional society that develop and serves the HR professional, advances and leads the HR profession through education, thought leadership, certification, community and advocacy to enhance the practice of human resource management and the effectiveness of HR professionals.

Marygrove College Joins SAGE Private College Enrollment Consortium

DETROIT, MI, July 11, 2016— Marygrove College announced today it has become the 84th Catholic college member of the SAGE Scholars Private College & University Enrollment Marketing Consortium.  SAGE is the nation’s largest private college enrollment consortium with 357 colleges.

SAGE students have indicated interest in attending a private college such as Marygrove.  Families can participate in SAGE through a 529 plan, bank, credit union, mutual fund or investment advisor or through a parent’s employee benefit program.  The SAGE Tuition Rewards® program is similar to a “frequent flyer” program because financial institutions and employers provide Tuition Rewards Points either as a thank-you for being a loyal customer or as an employee benefit.  The end result is that attending a private college is more affordable.

Founded by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) in 1905, Marygrove College is an independent liberal arts college and a Catholic institution of higher learning. The College’s commitment to the city of Detroit comprises an institutional mission and vision for developing urban leaders. The main campus is situated on 53 wooded acres in northwest Detroit.

Students at Marygrove College are equipped with the tools and the critical-thinking skills that allow them to adapt to a rapidly changing world. Because of this, they continue to be recruited by some of the nation’s top 10 neuroscience and neurosurgery facilities; they sign on with critically acclaimed dance companies in New York; they earn grants and graduate assistantships at leading research institutions; and they continue to develop major revitalization efforts right here in the city of Detroit.
