Take another look at Detroit
Statement from UDM President on City of Detroit Bankruptcy
While much has been written recently about the City of Detroit’s filing for bankruptcy in mid-July, it is important to know that there is no direct financial impact on University of Detroit Mercy. However, because of the University’s 136-year Mission of providing education in an urban context and serving the Detroit community, we will continue to play a vital role in the city as it navigates through this challenging period. As a Catholic, Jesuit and Mercy university with three campuses in Detroit, this is another ideal time in our history to show and share UDM’s commitment and economic impact on an iconic American city.
Many exciting initiatives are underway in the surrounding neighborhoods of University of Detroit Mercy, and the city of Detroit has also had numerous successes in recent months, especially with the influx of new corporate investments. Join us as a partner in the renaissance and revitalization of Detroit and take a moment to see the vibrancy and new energy of this historic city.
