Detroit Advisory Group

The Detroit Advisory Group is charged with developing capacity in partnership with Detroit communities, and in doing so, supporting U-M’s mission of research, education, and service.  The group is currently being formed.

Specifically, this group will:

  • develop mechanisms to enable input from Detroit partners on how we can best work together to achieve our mutual goals;
  • advise University leadership on Detroit-related matters, emphasizing strategic direction, engagement, programming, and infrastructure; and
  • enhance both internal and external transparency, foster collaboration, and promote best practices in alignment with the principles for community and civic engagement.
