As an independent Catholic institution of higher education, the University of Detroit Mercy supports a mission focused on teaching and learning. However, another important facet of UDM’s mission is service to others. Both the Jesuit and Mercy traditions, which guide the University, have emphasized community service as a vital aspect in the education and development of students. Through a comprehensive curriculum, students are challenged to develop their social, leadership and service responsibilities. UDM continually reaffirms this commitment to service as students, faculty and staff initiate and participate in community outreach activities to benefit Detroit area residents.
This summary includes examples of some, but not all of the University’s community outreach activities during 2012-2013. UDM remains committed to furthering its role as an educational institution serving the community of metropolitan Detroit.
