School of Social Work Technical Assistance Center

The Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is the community practice arm of the U-M School of Social Work taking theory to action at the neighborhood level. The Center is dedicated to establishing and promoting socially just communities, and deploys its interventions to support Detroit residents and stakeholders as they work to strengthen and improve their neighborhoods. Since 2006, the TAChas partnered with the Skillman Foundation in a neighborhood-based children's change effort targeting six neighborhoods in Detroit. The Center is also working to promote meaningful U-M engagement in Detroit by offering mechanisms that support communication and collaboration amongst U-M projects, and reciprocal community-campus partnerships.
