Egalitarian Metropolis: Towards an inclusive recovery for Detroit

For nearly a decade the Michigan–Mellon Project on the Egalitarian Metropolis has supported impactful programs and initiatives. These collaborative projects developed through several mediums, primarily: faculty and student-led research, public-engaged scholarship, and community-led place-based projects.

Each project was guided by the university’s three principles for community and civic engagement:

  • Recognition for the expertise and knowledge within the community.
  • Respect for individuals, communities, and their resources.
  • Equitable partnership focused on reciprocal relationships, transparency, and accountability.

The Michigan–Mellon Project on the Egalitarian Metropolis was generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
