Established in 2018, the Marygrove Conservancy is a nonprofit organization that manages operations and stewards the 53-acre Marygrove College campus in northwest Detroit. The mission of the conservancy is to stabilize and preserve the historic campus – which has served as an educational anchor in Detroit for more than 90 years – while identifying high-quality uses in the community.
A major initiative of the conservancy is managing a landmark partnership to create a cradle-to-career (P-20) educational campus on the site. The P-20 campus is being designed to be an educational, economic and civic anchor in the revitalization efforts of the Livernois-McNichols community. The campus will integrate academic experiences from early childhood to college and career with community-driven services, so that students are empowered and equipped to define their own future and that of their communities.
At full capacity, the campus is projected to serve more than 1,000 Detroit children and their families, primarily living in the surrounding Livernois-McNichols neighborhoods.
