About

The University of Michigan Detroit Center was founded in September 2005 in an effort to mutually enrich University and Detroit communities through service, education, research and the exchange of culture. Serving as a visible symbol of the nearly 200-year relationship between university and city, the Detroit Center provides a gateway for University and urban communities to utilize each other’s learning, research and cultural activities.

Conducted under the auspices of the University’s Office of the Provost, the facility accommodates research projects and outreach initiatives while also offering space for an increasing number of University programs involving Detroit citizens and organizations.

The facility includes offices and space for meetings, exhibitions, and lectures while serving as a home base for students and faculty working on projects in Detroit. Learn More about Detroit Center →
