What are your thoughts on Urban Leadership? Share them on April 9-11th

bold-banner_FINALTo gather your thoughts and suggestions about the role Marygrove College and the city of Detroit play in Urban Leadership, The Office of Urban Leadership (OUL) will be stationed in the hallway of the MC building (adjacent to the elevators) to conduct impromptu video interviews. This will take place starting at noon on Tuesday, April 9 and will go through Thursday, April 11th. All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to stop by.

As many of you already know, in 2006 Marygrove adopted a strategic vision of developing and fostering comprehensive Urban Leadership programming at all levels of the College, with a critical challenge to students to carry their leadership skills into the community to be agents of social change.  Marygrove’s “Buildiing Our Leadership in Detroit” (BOLD) is the centerpiece of this innovative institution-wide initiative.

We look forward to hearing your opinions and suggestions!  Ultimately, some of the video footage will be a part of the Urban Leadership section of the Marygrove website and may also be featured on the Marygrove Facebook page.

Thank you so much for your participation!
