Dr. Fike to join Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan at a 2:00 press conference today

Livetweet News Conference 3Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

I am pleased to announce that today at 2:00 p.m., Dr. David Fike will join Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan at a press conference to unveil a neighborhood rebuilding program. The first phase of this effort will target blight in the neighborhood near the Marygrove College campus. You may recall that last December, the College hosted a federal task force on blight, which recently completed a survey of blighted and abandoned homes and buildings in Detroit.

More about this exciting news can be found in the links below. In addition, the Marygrove Communications and Marketing team will be “live tweeting” the event. You can stay abreast of live coverage of the press conference by following @MGCollege on Twitter.
