Dr. Garibaldi was also interviewed by WWJ NewsRadio 950 hosts Roberta Jasina and Tom Jordan as well as WDET News director and host Jerome Vaughn at the 2015 conference (see photos).

The 2015 conference agenda builds on three pillars — Talent, Urban Development and Cohesion — that mirror how higher education is leading Detroit’s recovery from bankruptcy and that may complement business and government’s efforts to increase the population of Detroit, the region and Michigan overall.
