Marygrove College begins new chapter
DETROIT — Marygrove College in Detroit began a new chapter Jan. 4 with the official commemoration of the school’s transition to a graduate-studies-only institution.
Marygrove announced in August that, due to declining enrollment, it would be cutting its undergraduate courses and would be focusing on its graduate programs.
“The college is still open; it’s focusing on graduate programs in education and professional development, human resource management and social justice, and we are still focused on the revitalization of the city of Detroit,” said Elizabeth Burns, the college president.
Marygrove was established in Detroit in 1927 as a college sponsored by the Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In the 90 years since, it has become a pillar of the Detroit community — particularly for students seeking a career in education.
Many of the remaining courses will be online.
“For our graduate programs, roughly 75 percent of our students are online,” said Burns. “We will still have a strong presence on campus, and we remain committed to the city.”
