June 2, 2016


Three University Presidents, M. Roy Wilson, Wayne State University, Lou Anna Simon, Michigan State University and  Mark Schlissel, University of Michigan joined “Detroit Today” host Stephen Henderson at the Mackinac Policy Conference to discuss the University Research Corridor. The economic impact of three universities, in different ways, in the city of Detroit is about $950 million. Although Wayne State is in the center of Detroit, all three universities have a deep, committed relationship with the city. Especially from a research interest and perspective.
