October 27, 2013

The presidents of the three universities that make up Michigan's University Research Corridor (URC) - Wayne State University, Michigan State University and the University of Michigan - discuss the influence of the students and alumni in launching new businesses, tapping their talents and paving the way for Detroit's resurgence. "The three URC universities are investing in Detroit in ways that range from Wayne State's extensive police presence in Midtown Detroit that has cut crime 50 percent to Michigan State University's Community Music School for residents of all ages and the partnerships and understanding forged through the University of Michigan's Semester in Detroit program."
