In a word, we are diverse — women and men of all ages with various cultural‚ ethnic and political backgrounds. But what brings us together is one clear mission: As a forward-thinking, independent Catholic liberal arts college, we want you to become a competent, compassionate, and committed leader.
There’s something miraculous about Marygrove.
The Marygrove College community, with much enthusiasm, has committed itself to pursue an exciting Strategic Vision of Urban Leadership. This vision was developed in a collaborative process with significant input and consensus from a wide variety of campus constituencies and approved by the Board of Trustees in May, 2006.
Marygrove College, an independent Catholic liberal arts college sponsored by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is committed to fostering Christian values, to educating students from diverse backgrounds, and to serving the people of Metropolitan Detroit and beyond.
The Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary work in partnership with the administration, faculty, staff, and boards to uphold the integrity of the IHM mission in the schools, maintain academic excellence, and keep tradition alive in each of the schools for future generations.
The Service Learning Program at Marygrove is curricular and co-curricular in nature and provides an opportunity for students to maximize their learning experiences while living out the college’s mission and commitment to social justice. Curricular service learning involves students in some form of required community service and uses that service as a means of understanding course concepts and personal intervention when addressing social issues. The curricular service learning program requires students to complete a maximum of 15 hours of service at a pre-selected community agency site while fulfilling the objectives of that course. Co-curricular service learning is any service experience in which students have intentional learning goals and actively reflect on what they are learning throughout the experience. Annual co-curricular projects include:
