Inside Marygrove College's new direction: How it was saved and where it's going

Like many institutions of higher education, Marygrove College in Northwest Detroit has faced significant financial strains in recent years. However, perhaps unique to Marygrove, the college is in the process of transforming the community anchor and asset into a more sustainable educational model -- a cradle-to-career approach that includes a new preschool and K-12 school on the campus. "It's a big leap. The hope is that this is going to become an educational model that can be used in urban areas throughout the country," Marygrove's president Elizabeth Burns said.
