Master of Community Development (MCD) program open house

The Master of Community Development (MCD) program will hold an open house on Saturday, March 29 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the second-floor Peter Peirce Room in UDM's Loranger Architecture Building.

It's a great opportunity for prospective students to talk to current students, faculty and alumni to learn about the program.

The Master of Community Development program provides a 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.

Last year, 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. MCD graduates hold positions at organizations such as the City of Detroit, Loveland Technologies, Wayne County EDGE, Bridging Communities, Inc. and Urban Neighborhoods Initiatives.
