Master of Community Development Spring Open House

March 16, 2015

The Master of Community Development (MCD) program at University of Detroit Mercy is hosting its Open House on Saturday, March 28 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the second-floor Peter Peirce Room of the Warren Loranger Architecture Building on UDM’s McNichols Campus.

The MCD Open House is the perfect opportunity to meet current students, faculty and alumni and learn more about the program and its holistic approach to the theory and practice of community development.

This interdisciplinary graduate program has a foundation rooted in service, social justice and sustainability. The program integrates human, organizational, physical and economic (HOPE model) aspects of community development for a comprehensive approach to the renewal of communities.

In recent years, the MCD program was awarded a $750,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to support students with scholarships, internship placements and fellowships as they learn to become leaders in sustainable community development.

Graduates of the MCD program hold positions at organizations such as the City of Detroit, Loveland Technologies, Wayne County EDGE and Urban Neighborhood Initiatives.

Walk-ins are welcome, though RSVP's are requested. For further questions about this event, please contact MCD Director Virginia Stanard at
