Semester in Detroit is a new university program, funded by the Provost and the LSA and based in the Residential College and the Ginsberg Center. The program allows Michigan undergraduates to spend a semester living in, learning from, and exploring the city of Detroit. Each participant works with a unique community partner and urban initiative, while earning credit toward their degree. The first iteration of this program has taken 14 students to Detroit in Winter term, 2009. Visit Semester in Detroit for more information about the program.
This blog is a collaboration of the program participants to share our experiences working and living in the city, represent the resources and relationships between our community initiatives, and give others a look into our accomplishments and challenges this semester.
